East Kilbride Cricket Club, formed in 1962, is an outgoing and friendly Club.
The early history of the Club, has been recorded, in what is affectionately known as ‘The Book’, which will be available to view online soon.
The Cricket Club was a founding club within East Kilbride Sports Club which is home to many Calderglen Sports Hub teams.
We field two Saturday teams, one Sunday team and also play in a mid-week cricket league. The 1st team play at the highest level available to cricketers in the West of Scotland. New players are always welcome at all levels of ability and age. We play under the Western District Cricket Union. The web site is http://www.wdcu.co.uk/

The Junior Section has its own committee. The Club has gained coaching accreditation under Cricket Scotland’s ‘Accreditation Scheme’. We have a pro-active youth policy, coach in local schools and run evening coaching sessions for children and young adults during the summer. In the winter we train one night a week at the John Wright Sports Centre.
We have recently been awarded DCI Funding for a Part Time Cricket Development Officer to promote our sport to all. Just contact us if interested.
We enter teams in local competitions at a number of age ranges.
New young players are welcome to come and try our sport for the first time or to improve their skills with the help of our team of qualified coaches and Team Managers.
