Welcome to Poloc Cricket Club

  

 

Welcome!  Please enjoy this virtual look round our club - but, better still, why not come and see us?  Founded over 140 years ago, we're a family-centred club with our own ground in picturesque Pollok Park on Glasgow's southside, members coming from all backgrounds and from across the ethnic and cultural spectra, all taking an active part in club life.  As well as competitive and social cricket for juniors and adults, there are all-weather tennis courts, spectator seating and well-appointed clubhouse.

Poloc_Pythons_logo_small The Poloc Pythons will be back in tapeball action a week yesterday as the 2018-19 Tapeball League starts up for its second season.  The Pythons' first match sees them take on some motley crew called "Dynamic Dale", whoever they are!  Thereafter the fixture card sees matches against Greater Pollok Eagles, Asian All Stars, Motherwell CC and Govanhill CC, in that order.  As usual we'll be keeping up with the side's fortunes as the season progresses.
