May's Bounty Ground, Basingstoke

Bounty Road RG21 2DR. It's a fairly nondescript field, reached through about a mile of fairly nondescript Basingstoke. Was dropped, along with Portsmouth, so all Hampshire cricket could be concentrated at the Rose Bowl, but now in use again (not an ideal pitch to bat on).
Tel: 01256-473646

United Services Officers Ground, Portsmouth

Burnaby Road PO1 2EJ. By the railway, midway (half a mile) between Portsmouth Harbour and Portsmouth & Southsea stations. Surrounded by an eclectic range of building styles. Possesses the heaviest roller in the country (5 and a half tons). But in 1999, after a visit by ECB ground inspector Harry Brind, requested by the Portsmouth groundsman, the field was ruled as unfit for first-class cricket, and its scheduled fixtures for 1999 were transferred to other grounds.
