Groot Drakenstein Games Club is a social club who’s primary focus is on cricket. The club provides family recreational and sporting facilities for sports-lovers from far and wide, as well as weekly friendly cricket fixtures during the season. The club boasts the country’s oldest turf wicket, a historic clubhouse and well-stocked bar.
Groot Drak is always looking for new members to help support the club and to grow the Groot Drak family. There is also a strong commitment to developing a sporting culture within the surrounding communities, where a very active youth programme has been running for many years. Dating back to 1895, the club is steeped in history and tradition. Often hosting more than 50 fixtures a year (including many international teams), there is always a buzz at the club during the cricket season. Locals are encouraged to enjoy a drink at the bar while watching some entertaining cricket, framed by one of South Africa’s most picturesque mountain landscapes.
