Club History

Founded 3 September 1899

Rev. Sidney Warren Lavis suggested a cricket club be started to deal with youth of the time and named it after the St. Augustine’s Theological College in England where he completed his studies. Since then ‘Saints’, as the club is affectionately known, has survived many turbulent political times, having been forced to move from its original home in Green Point to the Cape Flats. With a big support base from the community, the club has since gone from strength to strength. Today, the club sits nestled between the Princess Dam and the Little Princess Vlei in the southern suburbs of Elfindale with Table Mountain as the backdrop. ‘Saints’ has over 150 active members that include a women’s team, a youth division and a mini-cricket team that caters for the ages between 4 to 8 years old. The club also boasts one of the most comprehensive youth cricket programs in the Western Cape. The club, over the years, has made and continues to make positive contributions to the cricketing community. Young cricketers have reaped the benefit of development and opportunities to participate in tours, tournaments and being promoted to playing the game at its highest levels.
