Since its inception in 1982, making it the oldest cricket Club in Munich and possibly Germany, Munich Cricket Club has been a proud standard bearer for the game and its traditions. Winning has its place, but the Chairman also likes to ensure refreshments are plentiful. Opposing batsmen will take a shine to his gentle hand grenades. But hopefully not to his rather fetching camouflaged shorts.

Home games are played at the ‘Hirschanger’ in the Englischer Garten, arguably one of the most picturesque grounds in Germany, just a lofted off drive from the famous Chinese Tower biergarten. MCC would welcome touring sides who wish to play social weekend cricket as we have done since 1982. Book early to avoid disappointment. Members of the current MCC Committee are only too happy to field any enquiries about the club, however the ugly matter of vote-buying at the AGM is considered now closed.

 

Our squad consists of a nucleus of 25 players from all far-flung reaches of the globe – especially England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. A sociable bunch with a conscience. MCC loves touring too, with away extravaganzas planned so far this year to Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Zuoz (Switzerland) and others are planned only a short train-ride away. The incapacitated new fathers in the team have all expressed considerable interest but passes are becoming scarce.
