The Coventry and North Warwickshire Cricket Club is an amateur cricket club in Coventry, England. Its 1st and 2nd XIs are, as of 2005, in the Birmingham and District Premier League Premier division. The teams play their home games at the club's ground in Binley Road, Coventry. Collins Obuya played there in 2003.[1]

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

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