Shadwell Cricket Club has been the sporting focal point of the community for more than a century. Over half the cricket played at the club is at junior level through four junior sides at U11, U13, U15 and U17 level. The junior cricket is subsidised and administered in accordance with ECB policies. The club has strong links with local schools, Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Leeds City Council and the YCCC Development Officer. They run summer coaching camps for juniors and are heavily involved in the Shadwell Community Bonfire. Many of the club's senior players came through the junior ranks.

The Cricket ground is situated on Brandon Crescent just off Tarn Lane. More info on the Shadwell Cricket Club website.

Shadwell Bridge Club meets most Friday evenings in the Village Hall to play duplicate pairs contract bridge. They formed over three years ago and currently enjoy about six tables per session.

If you are interested please contact one of the names on the Shadwell Bridge Club website Contacts page. Arrive at 7.15 pm (for 7.30 start).
