The Coventry and North Warwickshire Sports Club (CNWSC) (comprising, and formerly called, the Coventry and North Warwickshire Cricket Club (CNWCC), founded in 1851) is an amateur sports club in Coventry, England. Its 1st and 2nd cricket XIs were, as of 2014, in the Birmingham and District Premier League 2nd and 1st Divisions respectively. The cricket teams play their home games at the club's ground in Binley Road, Coventry. Collins Obuya played for the club in 2003.[1] The England cricketer Ian Bell at one time played for the club.[citation needed]

The cricket ground was one of three venues historically used by Warwickshire County Cricket Club, which now plays solely at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.[2]

The club is a private members' club which also provides facilities for other sports in addition to cricket, including tennis, netball, bridge, squash, racquetball and physical fitness training.[3] It hosts French dancing events on the third Thursday of every month.[4]
