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.

Saturday Championship League
The Gap Ramblers - Champions Again!

By Captain of Cricket

Congratulations to Justin Alexander and his team for retaining their title, losing just one game all
season. In the match that sealed the league, Ramblers scored 240/3 with Raag Kapur hitting 100 and Craig Johnstone 82 in a fabulous 200 run partnership. Stu Tohill with 3-21 and Satyendra Singh 2-9 effectively sniffed out any chance of a Saracens win.

Sydney Cricket Ground Trust Visit - Easter 2017

By Toby Brown Captain

The SCG kicked off their much-anticipated Hong Kong tour with a twenty/20 game at the Gap. HKCC won the toss and elected to bat - the SCG XI very kindly presenting us with the Sir Donald Bradman 20 cent piece used for the toss.

Keen to get on with the game, we skipped the traditional pre-batting huddle - a mistake on my part as I watched our openers each block the first ball they received. They may have preferred that I told them, at the SCG's request, each batsman would start their innings with a free hit. this game (with no doubt more to be said about him in the 50 over match report).
