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.



Latest news and club notices




Team selection [posted 17/04/15]


The Poloc XI team to play a Prestwick XI tomorrow at the Henry Thow Oval in Prestwick is online now, selected players names being added as they confirm.  The match is a 50 overs-a-side match starting at 12 noon. 


Junior outdoor training and coaching [posted 15/04/15]


After the short break for the Easter school holiday, junior training and coaching resumes next week.  We'll be carrying out our annual registration process next week too.  First up, and back outdoors after a long winter indoors, are the Under 11 group, who'll resume their traditional Monday evening slot between 6pm and 7.30pm.  Then on Wednesday the Under 13 and Under 15 groups will train - again at their time - between 6.30pm and 8pm.

As next week's sessions are the first of a new outdoor season, players and parents are reminded that their 2015 membership fees/subscriptions are now due.  A junior fee is just £75, with brothers or sisters paying just £35.  Also required at this time of the year are updated registration forms.  Again players and parents are reminded of this, and are asked to download a registration form and complete this, and bring it next week along with their 2015 membership subscriptions.  Registration forms can be found online here, or by clicking on the .pdf download link button above, left.


Overseas coaches and players [posted 15/04/15]


The first of the club's two overseas players arrives in Glasgow later today.  Nineteen year old Christopher Graham (pictured right), our "Overseas Amateur", comes to us from South Africa where he plays for Western Province Under 19s. 


Still to arrive is coaching professional Niel Bredenkamp (pictured left).  Also hailing from South Africa, 27 year old Niel plays his domestic First Class cricket with North West, and comes to the club after three previous successful seasons in UK club cricket.  More about both players can be found online.


Outdoor training [posted 08/04/15]

The first senior outdoor training session will be this coming Tuesday.  From 6.30pm we'll be attending to some pre-season admin', including collecting player subscriptions and updating registration photo's and membership details, before - weather-permitting - doing some outdoor training for the first time this season.  After six months indoors, it's always entertaining - as well as a bit of a shock to the system - when we get restarted outdoors!  Senior players are all invited to come along on Tuesday, on time to start at 6.30pm, and with their subscriptions.  Remember you can also pay your subscriptions online here, using your debit or credit card, and remember too that until a player pays their subscription they can't be selected to play in a match. 


Pre-season friendly [posted 08/04/15]

Another pre-season friendly has been agreed.  Saturday the 18th will see a Poloc XI travel to the Henry Thow Oval to take on Prestwick.  With a 12 noon start, the match will be 50 overs-a-side and see thirteen players participate. 


Funding support [posted 01/04/15]


The club's delighted that independent financial advisers Capital Managers have again generously supported the club's sister coaching Charity's Spring community coaching programme.  This support is as gratefully received as it is vital to the Charity's ongoing community work.
