Orleans Club Ground was a cricket ground in Twickenham, London (formerly Middlesex). The first recorded match on the ground was in 1878, when the Orleans Club played I Zingari.[1] The ground held its first first-class match during the same year when the Orleans Club played the touring Australians. Between 1878 and 1883, the ground held four first-class matches, the last of which saw the Orleans Club play Oxford University.[2] This was the last recorded match held on the ground.

Today defunct, the ground would have been located near to Orleans Road in Twickenham.
