The Hong Kong Cricket Club sets a high bar when it comes to the development of cricket in Hong Kong. An internationally acclaimed Club, the Hong Kong Cricket Club provides a structure under which all players, regardless of age or ability, can thrive.

The ground is set against a backdrop of the picturesque Hong Kong skyline and the immaculate outfield, combined with our square of top class turf pitches, offers quite a remarkable playing experience. In addition, players have the opportunity to benefit from one of Asia’s leading indoor facilities, ensuring each and every player has the opportunity to bring their game to new heights.

A large and well-structured junior programme is pivotal to the success of any club and it is in this area, perhaps more so than in any other, where the Hong Kong Cricket Club really shines. Our “Gappers” junior programme exposes more than four hundred children under the age of 13 to the game each and every week, under the tutelage of dedicated coaches and parent helpers. In addition, the Club fields fifteen junior sides in competitive cricket with both boys and girls participating across five junior age brackets, ensuring that the balance between group development and competitive cricket is well and truly established.

In Men’s Senior Cricket, the Club is represented in the domestic leagues by six individual squads covering both Saturday and Sunday cricket, through an extensive playing season lasting from September to May. From these teams, we select our highest performing individuals to represent the Club in its Premier League XI; a squad that competes in all formats against Hong Kong’s strongest domestic competitors.

The Hong Kong Cricket Club has been the leader in the promotion of Ladies Cricket in Hong Kong and China. We field two Ladies teams who compete in both 35 over and T20 formats on a regular basis throughout the season.

Men’s Senior Squad Training takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:30pm onwards. Ladies squad training takes place every Friday evening from 6:30pm onwards and new competitors across both genders, regardless of ability, are absolutely welcome to attend.

With a dedicated staff of four full time coaches, we offer private one-on-one and group sessions as well as our regular organised team practice. If you want some focussed advice or simply want to spend time improving your game under expert supervision, we can tailor a programme for you.

South Africa Cricket Tour,
26th January – 7th February, 2017

This tour had really been building for 4 years i.e. ever since our 2013 tour, that in turn followed the Club’s first South African tour in 1996. We could not wait to return! Like good wine, of which mercifully there are ample supplies in the Cape, our tours just seem to get better as time goes on, and it was fitting that our Chairman Gavin, who had led both the 1996 and 2013 tours, was able to join us, with Jayne, for our final game in Johannesburg. Bob the King, Tour Manager extraordinaire, Courtney, Wrighty and I had been fortunate enough to tour in 2013, and I for one had ever since dined out on recollections of side-splitting fines session antics, amazing hospitality, great food and wine, beautiful scenery - oh, and hard-fought cricket too! Could 2017 cap it? Oh yes, and some…

Taverners vs. Rugby Section
10th February 2017

A number of seasons had passed since the rugby lads donned the whites and took on the Taverners so it was great that on a chilly Friday afternoon in February, the traditional fixture was resurrected. Richard Cooke was charged with captaining the Rugby XI with his side containing some familiar faces from the Premiership including Ben Roberts, Rohan Cook and, of course, former Scotland International and legend of the pro game, Andrew Hall. The Rugby Section were keen to repeat their victorious feat of four years ago but with a Taverners' team containing the experience of Hale, Miles and Bettridge, to name but three, it would be a far from easy proposition....
