    We'll give you some information about the club and membership.

    The Club:
    The Rotterdam Cricket and Football Club Volharding Olympia Combinatie (V.O.C.) was established in 1895. The club has strong and long-standing roots in the local community.

    V.O.C. currently consists of over 1.800 members in total, some 200 of whom play cricket. V.O.C. Cricket won the national championship (after sharing that title in 1932 and 1965) in 1974, 1975, 1977, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1987, 1994, and 2018.

    V.O.C. became national T20 cricket champions in 2019, 2021 and 2022 and won the first European Cricket League for national club champions in 2019.
    As such it is a prolific cricket club in The Netherlands and has always been a great contributor to Dutch cricket and of players for the national cricket team.
    Over the years V.O.C. has hosted many international cricket matches, culminating in three successful ICC Super League ODI matches in 2022 between the national teams of The Netherlands and Pakistan (picture: see below).

    V.O.C. has a vision on its position in Dutch cricket. The vision entails V.O.C. being a leading and sustainable cricket club with self-trained and educated players and coaches. A professionally build up Cricket Academy is key to achieve this goal and will remain focus for the future: a place where every V.O.C. cricket member is welcome to receive tailor made coaching from a professional coaching staff. In this set-up V.O.C. aims to develop talented cricket players from its own club but also to develop cricket in the broadest sense, so everyone can play the game to the best of their ability, getting a good understanding of the Spirit of Cricket, a sense of values, sportsmanship and team spirit, at the same time enjoying themselves and the company.

    V.O.C. has junior cricket teams in each age group and five senior teams.

    The V.O.C. indoor cricket centre makes it possible to enjoy the King of Sports all year round at V.O.C.
    It has 3 artificial outdoor nets, 3 indoor nets and 7 pitches on the square (plus one artificial).
