The Malvern Cricket Club was formed in 1859 and is recognised as one of the oldest clubs in Victoria. The club calls the Malvern Cricket Ground home. It has played at the picturesque ground nestled behind the Malvern Town Hall since its formation which is unique to only a handful of clubs in metropolitan Melbourne.

In 1908 Malvern became a foundation member of the Victorian Sub-District Association (VSDCA) and all four senior elevens continue to participate in the VSDCA. The club has enjoyed significant success winning 30 premierships which is an Association record.  Eleven of those premierships have been won by the 1st XI including back-to-back premierships in 2009/10 and 2010/11, and also took out last year’s premiership also.

In 2005, the club formed an alliance with the St John’s Cricket Club thus establishing a junior arm of the club which flourishes today.  Malvern Juniors has approximately 200 boys and girls playing in age groups between Under 11-U15. In addition the club has approximately 75 boys and girls playing modified forms of cricket in the U9 & U10 age groups.  In total the junior club has a total of 300 players registered under the Malvern banner and each Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning fifteen junior teams represent the club.

At every level, the Malvern Cricket Club is established as a significant identity in its local community.
