The Green Jackets Ground is a cricket ground in St Cross, Winchester, Hampshire used by St Cross Symondians Cricket Club.

The ground was first used in 1859, when Winchester Garrison played I Zingari.[1] The ground is currently owned by the trustees of the nearby ancient Hospital of St Cross. The ground was first leased to the Rifle Brigade and since 1885 it has been leased to the Green Jackets Club.[2]

Only one first-class match was played at the ground, which saw Hampshire play Sussex in 1875.[3] Sussex were dismissed in their first-innings for 206. Hampshire were dismissed for just 60 in their first-innings and were made to follow-on in their second-innings, making a total of just 119. Sussex won by an innings and 27 runs.[4]
