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

Leading into Christmas, the Scorpions are very well placed to challenge for the Division One title, having lost just one of their five matches so far this season. Two recent defeats mean the Wanderers need to win their last two matches to remain in Division One, while the Optimists lost to Sri Lanka in their last match. Santosh Iyer (51) and Alex Brookes (55) helped us to 229, but the opposition passed that total with three wickets to spare.

In the Saturday League all three teams are able to challenge for honours in the New Year. The Nomads had a fine win over SCC Lancers with Paul Watkins making 72 and Toby Brown 69 from 52 balls in our 240/7. Debutant Ian Massey took 4-29 to ensure victory. The Ramblers hit form with a 6 wicket victory over USRC. In making 205/4 Jack Masters hit 63*, Craig Johnstone 26 and Stu Tohill a fine 70* from just 45 balls. With 3 run outs in our innings, it must be noted that David Varley was the only Rambler dismissed by a bowler that day.

HKCC Hazzard Shield – North vs South

Boxing Day – a special day in the cricket calendar which sees old foes from opposing hemispheres battle it out for one of the sport’s most historic and prestigious prizes: the Hazzard Shield. The North and South teams arrived at the Sportsman’s Bar at 11:30am, in varying states of repair following the previous day’s festivities. First order of the day: Bloody Marys.

At midday, the two captains – Shane ‘Sibbsy’ Sibraa for the South and myself for the North – strolled out to the sun-drenched square for the toss. Sibbsy called correctly and elected to send the North in to bat. This, he informed me, was a strategic decision: fielding first would deny his team access to the Bloody Mary bowl during the first innings, ensuring they entered the second with their faculties still intact.
