The Royal Hague Cricket and Football Club (KHC&VV is the Dutch acronym) has three sections: cricket, football and squash. All activities take place at or around De Diepput, the grounds on the Van Hogenhoucklaan in the Benoordenhout (“North Wood”) area of The Hague. The Club has been in existence since 1878 when the cricket club was founded. It has an illustrious past. In view of its contributions to the Dutch world of sports the designation “Royal” was bestowed on the Club in 1978 by Her Majesty Queen Juliana. Currently the KHC&VV has more than 2000 members.
More than sports
The social role of our association in and around the Benoordenhout area creates responsibilities which we gladly fulfill. Throughout the year various activities take place which involve all members of the Club, such as holiday camps, car rallies and card playing competitions. A weekly bulletin provides information on the activities at the Club. Every quarter, a magazine is published with more extensive reports and background stories. An active business club with a membership of around fifty companies from around the region provides the Club with additional financial support.
