Welcome to Grange Cricket Club
Founded in 1832, the Grange Cricket Club is one of Scotland’s leading cricket clubs. Our picturesque ground is located in the Stockbridge area of central Edinburgh and regularly hosts Scotland's international matches.
Our aim is to attract club players of all ages and all standards. We have three weekend league sides. In 2013 the 1st XI won the Scottish Cup, Murgitroyd Masterton Trophy and the Murgitroyd T20 Cup, while the 2nd XI won the ESCA Division 1 League. This season the 1st XI will play in the newly formed Cricket Scotland League – Eastern Premiership and the 2nd XI will play in the Cricket Scotland League – South East Championship. The 3rd XI currently plays in Division 4 of the East of Scotland League.
In addition to various cup competitions, there are also regular friendly fixtures, usually played on Sundays. Senior outdoor cricket practice takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from mid-April through to early September, but club members may use the artificial net facilities at any time in the summer. The coaching team will continue their good work in 2014. A number of our players have represented Scotland at senior or junior level and their experience is also of great benefit.
A highlight of recent years has been the growth and achievements of our Junior Section, now with 150 members. We offer regular coaching from the age of five (initially using the Kwik Cricket format) for both boys and girls, and junior teams start at under 10.
The all-inclusive subscription (payable by direct debit) also allows Grange members to become part of a wider sports and social club which can be used throughout the year. With a fully-staffed modern bar and club rooms, the historic pavilion is an ideal meeting place. For a small additional fee, members can also play tennis, squash and hockey. Junior, Intermediate and Full-Time Student members may elect to play one additional sport for free.
Grange Cricket Club is seeking new members for 2014, so if you are looking to play cricket, or put something back into the game you have enjoyed playing, then please make contact.
