The Menorca Cricket Club ("MCC") welcomes touring sides during the summer months of April, May, June, September and October offering a competitive village standard of cricket. Since it's inception the Club has played host to more than 250 visiting teams from the UK, Holland, Spain and even Canada. During the months of July and August the Club runs a special Summer Cricket programme for visitors to the island.
The MCC was founded in 1985 by a group of enthusiastic ex-pats playing on a gravel football pitch at S'Algar. The Club opened it's own ground at Biniparrell on 11th January 1992 and the members created, what has now become accepted as, the most beautiful cricket ground in the Mediterranean. The Club will be celebrating it's 30th anniversary next year, 2015.
Situated in the wonderful Mediterranean Sea, Menorca is the eastern island of the Balearic archipelago. It boasts a stunning coastline, with more than 100 beaches, coupled with a verdant, mainly rural, interior. There is something for everyone to enjoy and you, and your team supporters, will be ensured a wonderful holiday with some great cricket thrown in!
Arriving at the breathtakingly beautiful Biniparrell cricket ground is always akin to dying and going to heaven for any cricket lover; the smell of freshly cut grass transported me back to the days in England when weekends and often midweek evenings consisted of wall to wall cricket......bliss!
