Cricketer Jack Hobbs lived here

Legendary Surrey & England cricketer Jack Hobbs lived here.


Legendary England cricketer Sir Jack Hobbs (1882-1963) lived here.

As an opening batsman he scored more first-class runs (61,237 per Wisden, 61,760 per Cricinfo) and more first-class centuries (197 per Wisden, 199 per Cricinfo) than any other cricketer. These records probably wont be beaten since modern cricketers now play fewer first class matches.

Location: 17 Englewood Road, Clapham


Jack Hobbs certainly owned some sports shops , one was in Sidney Street Cambridge, he was born in Rivar Place Cambridge next door to my parents first home, I knew him and some of his family members. (Don Halls)
