Penshurst Park Cricket Ground aka the Earl of Leicester's Park at Penshurst, Kent is one of the oldest cricket venues in England. Part of the Penshurst Place estate, it is first recorded in the 1728 English cricket season when it was used for two historically significant matches involving teams organised by Edwin Stead and Charles Lennox, 2nd Duke of Richmond.
Penshurst Park is known to have been the venue for three significant matches played in 1728 and 1729 when Kent patron Edwin Stead used it as his home venue for matches against Sussex teams organised by Charles Lennox, 2nd Duke of Richmond and Sir William Gage.
The ground is now the home venue of Penshurst Park Cricket Club.
