Stowe has excellent facilities for cricket. There are seven squares, eight lanes of turf nets and ten lanes of astroturf nets. There is a comprehensive off season programme and three bowling machines and a Merlyn bowling machine are available to the coaching staff throughout the year.
There cannot be many better settings for a game of cricket than the North Front at Stowe and it is also a high quality playing surface – regularly used by Northamptonshire County Cricket Club for 2nd XI and youth fixtures. In 2005 the school hosted Northants 1st XI for the first time in its history.
Several pupils from the school have gone on the play county cricket, the majority of those during the last twenty years where eight Stoics have been signed to various counties. Several of these have also represented England at youth level. Overseas tours are seen as an important part of the development process and are taken regularly at junior and senior level.
