 WELCOME TO THE AMSTERDAM CRICKET CLUB (ACC)

The Club, formed in 1921, is a friendly, social and successful club, based in the Amsterdam/Amstelveen area. We have 3 pitches available at the week-end and one during the week.

A completely open club, with a thriving social scene, we continually welcome new members, whether seeking high quality Sunday league cricket or the gentler delights of a Saturday afternoon social, there is a team for everyone.

From our Sunday league teams, the 1st XI are playing in the KNCB Topklasse. The 2s play in a competitive division, providing a high standard of cricket throughout the Club. ACC 3 has a long standing reputation as providers of excellent social cricket. On Saturdays ACC is well represented by the effervescent Veterans and the fun loving but deadly serious Zami’s. Regular friendlies are played during the week, against touring sides from all over the world. Dit e-mailadres wordt beveiligd tegen spambots.

There is an extensive Colt’s section catering for children from the ages of 8 to 17, with the older ones joining the seniors as soon as they are ready. There are weekly training sessions, at the Club, with regular League and Cup matches too. For the youngest ones (Basic School age) we organise a Tip & Run competition on Friday evenings starting at 18.00, and ending in a social family diner. On Saturday morning we have seven teams in action in every age group: U9 (2x), U10, U12 (2x), U14 and U16.

U9 (6 against 6) and  U10 (8 against 8) play with a soft ball and plastic bats. Everyone gets an equal share of the action. A game lasts 2x12 overs at U9 and 2x 16 overs at U10 (1 over = 6 balls).

Our U12, U14, U16 teams feature in the Top-class. They play with a proper cricketball and 'out=out'.
