Basel Dragons Junior Cricket Club was formed in 2011 by a group of parents who love the game of cricket and wanted to give their children the opportunity to play the beautiful game. The club boasts around 60 registered players, boys and girls aged between 7 and 17.
We play competitive cricket all year round, indoors and outdoors, and field teams at U11, U13, U15 & U17. In the Summer season, which runs from April through to early October, we are based at the Rankhof Sports Centre for U11 and Bachgraben for U13/U15/U17, and in the winter we mostly train at Baumlihof Gymnasium, both facilities being located in central Basel (for directions please view the ‘Grounds’ section on the website). For club training times, have a look in the ‘Schedule’ section.
We play competitive matches and participate in tournaments throughout Switzerland and beyond so the children can really get the chance to enjoy this wonderful sport right here in Switzerland! We aim to cater for all ranges of experience and ability, giving the children the chance to develop their knowledge of the game in a fun and enjoyable environment. Anyone keen to enjoy and learn more about cricket is more than welcome to join us!
Here you find a short biography of our coaches.
Annual Club Reports
Here you find a collection of the Annual Reports since club foundation.
Club Kit (new)
The club shop is with Cricket Haven and is open permanently. The supplier will collect orders until a minimum of 6 items is reached. At this point, the order will be executed. We are assured that normal delivery times are 3-4 weeks in low season, and a maximum of 6-8 in high season (Jan-Mar). You can now have the name of your child printed on the back of either the match shirt and or the training shirt. This is totally up to you as is the name, it could either be the first name, the nickname or the surname. Please however DO NOT put a number on the back of the shirts. To track when the minimum order is reached, please forward your order confirmation to the club secretary (email address below).
A size chart can be found here.
Club Kit (used)
We plan to have regular ‘flea markets’ at events with a larger participation (usually the annual ‘Dads vs Lads’ games at the end of summer and the annual ‘Awards Ceremony’ at the end of the year). We will inform club members beforehand, please bring along used gear that you would like to shift. The club also collects donations over the year (used bats, gloves etc.) and will also sell these items at reduced rates on those occations. Feel free to also offer used gear on the club facebook page (details at the bottom of the page).
