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.

We have three weekend league sides. The 1st XI play in the Cricket Scotland League Eastern Premiership. The 2nd XI play in the Championship Division and the 3rd XI in Division 4 of the East of Scotland League.

In 2016 twenty/twenty cricket was our strength. We won the Masterton Trophy and the Murgitroyd T20 Cup for the third time in four years. We also launched our cricket academy, with a full and testing development programme for the boys selected. This will continue in 2017.

Our Junior Stags enjoyed their cricket and achieved a great deal at all the levels. The U13's and U15's won their respective Scottish Cups and as ECB Scottish Champions reached the final eight of the NatWest National Club Championships.

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 2017. 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 180 plus 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. Please see under Junior Stags.

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 2017. Our aim is to attract club players of all ages and all standards, so if you are looking to play cricket, or put something back into the game you have enjoyed playing, then please make contact
