All About the David Buck Oval
Since 2006, Traidhos Three-Generation Community has welcomed cricketers from around the world to the David Buck Oval* in Mae Rim, Chiang Mai. The ideal months for cricket tournaments in Chiang Mai are November to April. Seminars, team training and coaching classes can be held year-round.
Nestled in the Mae Rim valley, surrounded by mountains and rice fields and just twenty-five kilometres north of the Chiang Mai city centre and International Airport, Traidhos Community with the David Buck Oval offers an ideal venue to host local, regional or international cricket events for your club, school, tour, organisation or league.
The David Buck Oval and practice nets, different accommodation options, a choice of eating establishments and other amenities are all conveniently located on the 120-acre campus of the Traidhos Three-Generation Community for Learning
" Prem and the David Buck oval have been fantastic for us at Lamphun Juniors cricket club, such an amazing facility, one of the best in SE Asia. Our 65km journey from Lamphun is well worth it as all my young players look forward to playing there, what a great place to learn how to play cricket, we can’t wait for the season to start again! "
*formerly Prem Centre Cricket Academy. The Oval was renamed in memory of David Buck (ECB Level 3 Staff Coach) who promoted the game of cricket in northern Thailand and who served as coach and Director of the Cricket Academy.
