Hardenhuish Park is a cricket ground in Chippenham, Wiltshire. The ground is located behind the football ground used by Chippenham Town F.C.. Hardenhuish Park hosted its first cricket match in 1902 when Wiltshire played Dorset in the Minor Counties Championship. The ground was used on-and-off by Wiltshire during the 20th century, hosting 47 Minor Counties Championship matches.[1] Two MCCA Knockout Trophy matches were also held there in 2002 and 2003.[2]

Wiltshire have also played a number of List A matches at the ground, starting with playing against Hampshire in the 1964 Gillette Cup, which was Wiltshire's first ever List A match. Five further List A matches were held on the ground, four of which had a combined Minor Counties team as the home side, and the last of which saw Wiltshire play the Derbyshire Cricket Board in the 2001 Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy.[3]
