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.

Cricket round-up

By Sean Robson, Captain of Cricket

The late summer weather continued to cause problems for us as Typhoon Haima washed out the Nomads’ game against KCC Tartars on Saturday 22nd October.

Keeping our challenge for the Premier League alive, we beat KCC by 5 wickets. KCC scored 207, with Ryan Buckley taking 4-29, Raag Kapur 3-31 and Anshuman Rath 2-34. Anshuman top scored in our reply with 56, ably assisted by Nizakat Khan (47) and Gareth Harte who made 42.

In the Elite Sunday League, the Scorpions narrowly lost by 19 runs to the champions, KCC Templars. Set 307 to win, the Scorps’ innings was anchored by fine knocks from James Redmayne who hit 108 and Gareth Harte who made 78. Earlier in the day, Gareth, Giacomo and Jhatha each took 2 wickets.

The Optimists played their first game and beat the HK Dragons. Optimists batted first and made 233 all out. We started well with Travis Smithson continuing his fine form scoring 47 from 34, while Elliot Andrews’ 73 off 51 was the perfect Captain’s knock that held the innings together. The Dragons were dismantled by our young players with Harry Ledger taking a fabulous 6-20, while Tej Sheopuri took two wickets and Kabhir Sodhi a stumping.
