Grange Cricket Club is based in Grange, South Australia. The club was founded on 14th Aug 1885. Grange CC has a very strong history as a club. The club has shown growth in every seasonal years. At the early stages of the club they used to played organized social games, generally about 20 to 25 matches every year, those matches mainly were one day matches. At the end of the 1890's the club had established itself as one of the state leading non associated club.
Just because of world war the club had been closed down. The club got reformed in 1919/20 season.
The club has won its first title in 1937 by winning the first premiership (In Section 2) and then the club was promoted to play in Section 1. Again the club was closed down because of World War 2 from 1941 to 1944. But then too the club reformed in august 1944 from this point the club has never looked back. The club reformed themselves very quickly and also formed another team (Team B) in 1945/46 season.
