You may be wondering why we are called Hambledon Productions? Well...Hambledon is a small village in Hampshire and legend has it that the very first game of cricket was played there in 1765. We, as a family, love the game of cricket and our family home in Lincolnshire is called Hambledon so the name stuck.
