The Old Mid-Whitgiftian Association (OMWA) was formed in 1908 at the prompting of the Headmaster of the day, the Rev. G. A. Jones. The Cricket Club was formed in the same year. Previously there had been a dinner club. The Association’s objectives were to continue friendships started at school, promote sporting activities and act for the mutual benefit of former pupils and school staff.

The Association has since developed considerably, but still pursues its original aims.

On the sporting side, only the Cricket Club has survived for the entire life of the Association. Athletics, motoring, rambling, and tennis sections have had their glory days but are now just happy memories. Currently the TMWA also supports amateur dramatics, football, golf, hockey and rugby.

The Cricket Club currently fields four Saturday teams in the Surrey Championship and two on Sundays in the Surrey Trust League. A very strong Junior Section runs age groups sides from U8 to U16 in the newly formed Surrey Junior Cricket Championship.
