Oval is the famous ground of the Surrey County Cricket Club which was formed in 1884, the name Oval coming from the shape of the ground. The first piece of turf was laid in March 1845. The first cricket match was played on or about 13 May of that year, and the first Test match in England (v. Australia) in 1880.

Prior to the station's opening the name of KENNINGTON OVAL was considered, and may have been used for a short time after opening. Officially, the station was opened as OVAL on 18 December 1890.
