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

Sunday Cricket

The Scorpions’ critical match against KCC Templars ended in defeat. Set a massive 430 to win, Scorpions’ openers, Raag Kapur and Charlie Bright were perfectly on track - scoring 100 from just 11 overs before Raag fell for a 38 ball 66. Charlie scored 35, while Scott Steward (37), Toby Raper (45) and Alex Sheppard (20) all got starts. Still in with a chance of the title, Isaac’s team have two games left to decide the final standings for the season.

The Optimists’ destiny was entirely in our own hands to win four games from four to achieve promotion. The first game against Sri Lanka was a resounding victory. Batting first, Sri Lanka were all out for 163 in just 35.5 overs. Our chief destroyer was Brenton Macdonald who bowled superbly to earn figures of 8.5 - 2 -5- 34. Adding to his 4 dismissals behind the stumps, David Jacquier made 55 in partnership with Sam O’ Malley, who hit a fine 59. Proceedings were completed by Adeel Shafique, whose final innings of the season yielded 32 undefeated runs from a mere 14 balls.

The match against KCC Infidels ended in a close win for us. The visitors batted first and scored 194, thanks to skipper Elliot Andrews’ 4-47, Brenton MacDonald’s 3-37 and Dave Marriott’s 2-51. The chase was led by Mark Wright’s 51 in the middle order. Dave Marriott’s measured knock of 39*, ably assisted by George Gladstone (9*) ensured we achieved the target. Two more wins and the Opties are back in Division 1!
