The Honolulu Cricket Club plays 11 months out of the year. The ground is closed for repairs every August through Labor Day weekend. We share our ground with soccer and typically play three matches each month. We play on most Sundays, however we can arrange matches during weekdays if needed. The club has thirty or so playing members so providing a few players to fill out an opposition side is not a problem.
Our ground is located in Kapiolani Park in the shadow of Diamond Head and across from Waikiki Beach. We bat on an Astro-turf track over concrete. The outfield is comprised of two soccer fields. The ground is an easy 10-15 minute stroll from most Waikiki hotels. From all Waikiki hotels, walk along Kalakaua Avenue towards Diamond Head. You will pass in front of the Honolulu Zoo and then head into Kapiolani Park past the bandstand. Our cricket ground backs onto the backside of the Waikiki Shell. Our ground has basic public bathroom facilities, a drinking fountain and plenty of shade from trees. For touring teams we provide tents, chairs, tables and coolers.
The Honolulu Cricket Club can host your club at the Honolulu Lawn Bowls Club, located in Ala Moana Park across from the shopping center and a five minute drive from most Waikiki hotels. We can provide a barbecue or buffet dinner along with a full, hosted bar.
There are many fun activities to take advantage from on O'ahu.
We can arrange golf at one of several courses on the island, rates start at $45 with a local identification card and go up above $100. Recommended courses on the Windward side of Oahu include Olomana GC, Luana Hills GC and Ko'olau GC. The only option on the East side is Hawaii Kai GC which is quite nice. On the Leeward side of Oahu we recommend Kapolei, Ko'olina GC & Waikele GC

Try a snorkeling day sail or a sunset sail aboard one of the catamarans operating off of Waikiki Beach. Drive up to the North Shore of Oahu to watch the surf, swim in the water and relax.
When you go up to the North Shore to watch the big surf in the Winter or have a swim in the Summer, try eating at Cholo's Mexican in Haliewa town is outstanding and so is Kua Aina Burgers. Do not forget to try the rainbow shaved ice from Matsumoto's
There are several interesting night spots to suit different tastes. The Maitai Bar, Moose Magilacuddy's, The Yard House (with more than eighty beers on tap), Rumfire, Lulu's Surf Club, Senor Frog's, Tiki's Bar & Grill, the Irish Rose Saloon, Kelly O'Neil's and the Harbor Pub offer an interesting mix of locals and tourists in a party atmosphere. Duke's and the Shorebird are located on the water and are highly recommended for sunset and after. For the late night dancers we have the Hano Hano Room, Aaron's, Rumours, Scrouples. Leaving the Waikiki area try going to the Aloha Tower Marketplace for several bars including Hooter's, Gordon Biersch and Kapono's (live music). For those single men looking for exotic women then try Club Rockza, Exotic Nights or Club Femme Nu. For those looking for a trendy disco, the "W" is very popular along with Pearl Nightclub. These nightspots come highly recommended by HCC members and visitors alike.
