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.

The 2017/18 Season

By Captain of Cricket, Sean Robson

It seems just a few short weeks since the season closed and the Annual Awards Dinner recognised our successes in fine style.

As I write, we are beginning the pre-season trials in the recently refurbished Cricket Centre. And in just a few more short weeks the season is once again upon us. The ground is looking fabulous. Nathan Law, our Head Groundsman, and his team have done a fine job in preparing us for the new season.

The summer months have seen a number of changes. Our Coaching structure is finalised with just a couple of visas to be arranged and we welcome the following coaches to our team:

CRI-ZELDA BRITZ

Cri Zelda Britz will be joining the coaching team at the end of August and will have a key responsibility for managing and driving women’s cricket at HKCC. Cri- Zelda is a former South Africa international player with nearly one hundred caps in Women’s Test, ODI and T20I internationals. She also had the honour of captaining her country during that time. Since retiring from top class cricket she has been pursuing a successful career in business, but is now looking forward to a new challenge with HKCC.

ADIL MEHMOOD

Adil has recently finished studying an MSc in Sport Coaching at Loughborough University in the UK and joins us at HKCC on 1st September. He is a current Hong Kong National squad member and has played six List A and T20 Internationals for Hong Kong as a fast bowler. Adil will be playing for the Wanderers in Sunday Elite cricket for HKCC.

ADEEL SHAFIQUE

Adeel is a former MCC Young Cricketer who came through the ranks at Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club. He has so far represented various counties at 2nd XI level. Adeel will arrive at HKCC to join the coaching team in mid-September. He is a wicketkeeper and batsman who will represent the Optimists in Sunday cricket while at the Club.

EHSAN NAWAZ & TANVEER AHMED

Ehsan and Tanveer have joined HKCC for the 2017-18 season and will be part of the Gappers coaching team in addition to representing the Scorpions in Sunday cricket. They are both current Hong Kong internationals and have represented the national team in First class, List A, ODI & T20I matches. They were both members of the Kowloon Cantons team that won the Hong Kong T20 Blitz in 2016.

For a variety of reasons, Elliot Andrews is our only remaining captain from last season. For Elliot to be called a ‘veteran’ at this stage of his youthful career with the Club is quite something!
