About The Lions Cricket Club
The Lions is a cricket club for children aged 12 - 19 in Central and Southern Tokyo. Through its affiliation with the British School in Tokyo it is based at the BST Nagasawa Ground where training and games are held most weekends in March - June and September - November.
Although many of the players attend the British School in Tokyo, the Lions is open to anyone, male or female, between the ages of 12 - 19. We are always looking for new players to join our club.
Can I try out the Lions before joining?
Are you interested in taking up Cricket but unsure if you would like being a part of a Club? Do you want to try out Cricket before making the commitment of joining a Club?
You can attend one of our regular training and practice sessions with no commitment to join the club - please contact us to arrange your visit.

How often do the Lions Train and Play
The Lions training and match period runs in two periods each year:
- March - July
- September - November
weekends during these periods typically see a match or a training session, with around 10-12 games and 10-15 training sessions run per year.
Training sessions run for 2 hours, although we hope to expand these to 3 hours from 2023 if we can secure BST Nagasawa for longer.
The Lions also participate in several other Cricket events each year.
