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 135 years ago, we're a family-centred club with our own ground in picturesque Pollok Park on Glasgow's south-side, 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, a unique winter Golf Section, spectator seating and well-appointed clubhouse with spacious bar, function room, pool, table tennis, darts and catering facilities.

The club's sides play under the name, NVT Poloc and NVT Shawholm, NVT being the club's main sponsor - more about it and the club's other funders and supporters can be found in the Sponsors and partners section.  NVT Poloc plays in the Cricket Scotland League administered by the Western District Cricket Union ("WDCU") and NVT Shawholm plays in that league's reserve division.  In addition, Poloc Panthers and an Academy XI both play in both the WDCU Sunday and Evening Leagues, and no fewer than five junior sides play at five age-group levels in the West District Junior Cricket Union leagues and cups, as well as in national cup competitions.  And after you've had a look around here at Poloc online, why not leave us a message in the Guestbook.

Annual membership subscriptions [posted 26/01/15]


December's AGM approved the annual subscription rates for 2015 and these can now be paid after subscription notices were sent out to members by Secretary Keith Sheridan today.  Paying subscriptions as soon as possible is helpful to the club, particularly in the off-season months when - as with most clubs - cash flow is tightest.


To assist with paying subscriptions the club offers paying by credit or debit card using a secure PayPal facility.  To use this facility, simply click on the Pay subscriptions page link in the left-hand menu list and follow the instructions on the page this takes you to.

Tonight's Quiz Night at the club, and we're grateful to our friends at the Strawberry & Spice Garden and New Turban Restaurant for their generosity and support with tonight's catering.  If you've not been to one or other, or both, before, make sure you take the chance to pop in over the next few weeks!
