Administrative history

The Hamilton Cricket Club is one Canada’s oldest cricket clubs still in existence. It was formed in 1847. It was one of the inaugural members of the Hamilton and District Cricket League in 1921. In 1958 membership allowed for the formation of a ‘B’ team in competitions. The club experienced dominance in the league in the 60’s and 70’s with the club winning almost every year. Membership waned in the 80’s and 90’s, as the ‘B’ team was dropped. However a resurgence of interest in the sport has allowed for a second team (Colts) to be reformed.
