HBS was established as a football club in 1893; in 1928 cricket was introduced. Much later hockey was added to the club. Ever since these three sports components form the multisports club HBS Craeyenhout in The Hague. Very close to the Quick cricket club - their neighbours in the 'Bosjes van Pex'.
Between 1978 and 1980 HBS men's first XI won the national title three times. In 2018 they captured the T20 championship.
HBS has a considerable youth department: cricket can be enjoyed and played at all levels in all age groups by girls and boys.
