Regardless of its international reputation, the Hong Kong Cricket Club did not, and could not, exist on Interports and Friendly matches alone. Competitive league cricket is the backbone of the Club's day-to-day existence.
HKCC currently runs three teams in the domestic Saturday League competition and three teams in the Sunday League. Additionally, the Club provides teams in all junior league competitions (Under 13 to Under 19) and the HKCA Women's League.
The Cricket season runs from late September through to early May and Club team net practices are held under lights every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening starting from 6:30 p.m.. Ladies' team practices are held on Friday evenings.
HKCC also organises junior coaching programmes in association with Hong Kong Cricket Assocation throughout the year. For more details please click on The Gappers.

Update from Dom Bunning
As another season draws to a close, with the bowlers and young families alike looking to claim the Gap’s green verandah as their own over the summer months, we reflect on a season of two days: a successful Saturday but a more sombre Sunday.
Saturday - First, the glory. The Witherers wrapped up the 2nd Division in style while the Nomads sit atop Division 1 at the time of going to press. Meanwhile, the Gap Ramblers are awaiting other results to see if their challenge for promotion will end in success.
The Nomads managed wins against KCC and Millennium with strong contributions across the board for Paul Watkins’ side. The Witherers claimed the Div 2 title after putting together a decent win in their 2nd derby of the season against the Ramblers in a sometimes feisty battle. It was a close run affair though, the Witherers only sealing their superiority with three balls remaining. The Gap Ramblers found some final form versus LSW in their last game of the season and both teams will hope to prosper in the top flight alongside the Nomads next year.
As for the Sunday sides ,the Wanderers finished the season with internal bragging rights, defeating the Scorpions by 1 wicket in a nail biting derby game, before a more resounding victory the following week over the Optimists. The Scorpions made a solid 296, thanks to 130 from Scott McKechnie and 70 from James Redmayne. But the total never looked out of reach, with the Wanderers starting well through Faulkner and Bailey. After a brief mid-innings wobble, Cutler (who ended up making 67) and Ginnivan steadied the ship and looked set to bring the Wanderers home. But Mark Ferguson’s wickets shifted the momentum again, and Wanderers' skipper Jon Bond was left to try to shepherd the lower order. Contributions all the way down and a crucial 55* from Bond saw the Wanderers over the line with one over to spare, much to the delight of the watching masses.
