Hall was born at Whitfield, Derbyshire. In 1881 he was working at a print works at Glossop. Hall made his first-class debut for Derbyshire in the 1882 season against Yorkshire in June when he took a wicket and a couple of catches, but failed to strike highly as an opener. He played one more match for the club that season as a tail-ender. Hall next played first class in the 1885 season when he played five matches and achieved a best bowling performance of 6 for 43 against Lancashire. He played two matches in the 1886 season. Hall was a right-hand batsman and played 17 innings in 11 first class matches with an average of 11.23 and a top score of 43. He was a right-arm medium pace bowler and took 14 first class wickets at an average of 26.85 and a best performance of 6 for 47.
With Derbyshire out of the championship in 1888, Hall continued to play regularly for the club until 1892. In 1893 he played for Blackpool against the Australians. Nine years later in 1902 he was playing in the Lancashire League for Accrington.
