About Stuttgart Cricket Verein e.V.

  • Since the founding of the Stuttgart Cricket Club (SCV) by Roshan Ranasinghe and Aravinda Ruhunuhewa, we have grown to become the largest cricket club in BWCV. And also one of the most successful and innovative. We have made diversity our motto, in a manner of speaking.
    In 2011 we started out with a few men who struggled to field a complete team, but we now also offer women's, children's and youth cricket.

    Over the years, we have won numerous titles at national and local level in all three divisions, including the gold medal in the German Women's Championship, the runner-up in the men's championship and the titel of BW U16 Championship. Achievements

    We field one men's team in the German Bundesliga and one in the regional league. In the 50-over format, we compete with the teams "SCV" and "SCV Blue", in the T20 format with the "Riders" and the "Legends". For the BWCV indoor league, we field the "Royals" and the "All Stars" The Teams

    Since 2019, our women have been part of "BW-United", in which women from 4 clubs have joined forces. In winter, we also take part in the softball WW league. BW-United

    Our youth section has been in existence since 2017 and is constantly growing. It now has almost 50 members and is organised as YoungSCV. We operate 2 groups, the younger "Tigers" and the advanced "Adlers". Both groups compete in numerous tournaments and leagues, with the children playing softball and the youngsters mostly using hardball. Youth Cricket

    As we have set ourselves the goal of promoting cricket in Germany, we are also involved in other projects, for example by organising school events, taster days and tournaments. From 2016, for example, we have organised softball tournaments to offer non-club cricket fans a forum for an exciting day of competition. In 2020, we expanded this format to include a youth tournament. Our last project was the international "Southside Youth Tournament" in February 2023.SCV Cup

    In June 2022, the WLSB named us one of around 40 St├╝tzpunktvereine for integration in Baden-W├╝rttemberg. Integration is a particular concern for us as a largely migrant-run club. First and foremost, of course, we promote sporting skills, but also community and cohesion. We pay particular attention to incentivising volunteer work, successful networking and forging new pathways.

    Our home ground, where we train and will play again from 2024, is located in Sportpark Weil, Esslingen, only our little Tigers train in Stuttgart Weilimdorf. In winter, we offer indoor sessions in Stuttgart. Training
