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 women's Cricket in Hong Kong and China. We field two women's 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.

Round Up

By Captain of Cricket, Sean Robson

The Club wins Premier League T20 Championship!

Sundays in January saw the start of ‘double header’ T20 matches as our Premier League side challenged for honours in this year’s competition. Against KCC we won the first match, posting 180 with Mark Wright making 46.

The second game created huge excitement with both sides tied after 20 overs. The Super Over saw KCC hit 14 runs. Unfortunately, we could only manage 6 and the day’s points were shared.

Our day against the Independents XI saw us score 190, thanks to a fine 65* by Mark Wright and 36 by Courtney Kruger. Independents overcame our total in the last over. In the next match we hit a massive 253 with Anshuman Rath (78) and Nizakat Khan (108) treating the spectators to a sensational 170 run partnership. Independents were all out for 138 and Isaac’s team shared the spoils for a second weekend running.

The third round involved Pakistan Association and we achieved two victories! The first, a closely fought affair, we edged with an over to spare, while the second saw us score a huge 243/2 with Anshuman Rath delivering a masterclass 122* and Adeel Shafique 85. Skipper, Isaac Poole, took 4 wickets as Pak A were bowled out for 118.

The final round saw us up against LSW who scored 242 in their first innings. Our reply was 40 runs short as we were all out for 202. The next match, on what must have been the coldest day at the Gap for a while, saw a fabulous 110 from Nizakat Khan lay the foundation for our first innings total of 216. By scoring over 200, we had secured the title by earning an extra bonus point, however the Championship was celebrated at the close of the match after we had won comfortably.

Congratulations to Isaac, all the players and special thanks to our Head Coach, Craig Wright.
