We are proud of our history and value it.
Stockholm Cricket Club was formed in 1948, since then we have had many successes on and off the field. For many years we were the only cricket club in Sweden, playing against touring sides or travelling to the continent to play. Since then cricket has grown and is played all over Sweden.
Our history connects us with the previous generations who introduced cricket to Sweden. To move forward it is important to remember where you come from and what we have achieved together.
We have had many first’s in our club that we are proud of. In the 1960s we were the first club in Sweden to offer youth membership. In the 1990s we were the first club to have a women’s section. In 2010s we were the first club to start a Parasports section.
We are open and welcome everyone.
Welcoming everyone to the club irrespective of ability and experience is crucial to grow the game of cricket in Sweden. We will provide an opportunity for everyone to be active and play cricket throughout their life.
From the very start of the Stockholm Cricket Club we have had members from all around the globe. A diversity of nationalities, cultures, religions, gender and ages in our club makes us a stronger as a whole.
We play with the spirit of cricket in mind.
As said in the preamble to the Laws of Cricket - we play hard but fair, we respect team mates, our opposition, umpires and fans, and we show discipline when things don’t go out way. In playing fairly, we also disassociate ourselves with doping, bullying and match fixing.
These attributes make us better people on and off the field.
We place youth at our foundation
Youth cricket is the foundation for the club and the future for cricket in Stockholm. Providing children an opportunity to play cricket and be active builds a healthier society.
We will support children to develop to be the best they can be, in a fun and safe environment.
To provide the opportunity to train and play cricket we need volunteers from parents to be our leaders.
Elite teams are our external face
Even with a broad inclusive approach to recreational cricket our elite teams (Dam & Herr 1st XI) are our face out to the community.
Good, well-trained coaches and leaders are a key component for our Elite cricket teams.
We strongly dissociate ourselves from the use of doping-classified drugs and the abuse of other drugs among both our players and leaders.
