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..

HAWK-EYE - The Worlds Leading Cricket Analysis Tool

In 2009, the Hong Kong Cricket Club invested in ‘Hawk-Eye’ for the very first time. Due to a regular rotation of the Coaching Staff and with a relative lack of knowledge surrounding Hawk-Eye, it had been massively underutilised.

UNTIL NOW

Hawk-Eye is back with a vengeance and with the help of our highly trained Coaching staff; the Hong Kong Cricket Club hold all the tools necessary to provide you with the most in-depth feedback you are likely to come across in your career!

Cricket round up: Double top!

By Dom Bunning

As we enter the tail end of the season, things are hotting up in the Cricket Leagues. Having captured both the 2-day and the T20 Premier League titles, HKCC will be looking to make it a triplewhammy by cleaning up in the 50 over competition starting in March. All support will be much welcomed with a home match every Sunday in March and April.

Elsewhere, there are league titles on the line on both Saturdays and Sundays in the coming weeks.

The Gap Ramblers and the Nomads appeared set to clinch the top spots in their respective divisions. The former sealed a tight win in the last over against Kai Tak, with a strong position nearly thrown away after Captain David Varley and Dom Bunning - out of retirement for one final flourish – put on over 150 for the 2nd wicket. Experienced Justin Alexander got the boys over the line after some great initial bowling by Riz Masood secured a chase that should have been comfortable enough.

A big win against Laguna Gulley with Varley and Craig “Champagne” Johnstone in the runs, followed by good spells by Masood and Angus Robson helping to roll the opposition for just 102. A few more good weeks should see the Ramblers promoted to join the Witherers and Nomads in Division 1.
