Quick, Haagse Voetbal & Cricket Vereniging
The Football & Cricket Club Quick, based in The Hague, was established in 1896. Originally football was the only sport played by the 'Roosters' (Sportpark Hanenburg literally meaning "Rooster borough"), but in 1927 the cricket department followed suit. And quite succesfully too. The club won five national men's championships, the last one in 2014. They also captured the first ever T20-title in 2007. The women's XI did one better with 6 national titles, also winning a record four T20 national championships .
Experienced former Dutch representative players like Paul-Jan Bakker, Edgar Schiferli, Pieter Marseille en Helmien Rambaldo all grew up at sportpark Hanenburg.
Quick combines and unites, like neighbour HBS, football (3rd division national) and cricket (Top league) at a high level.
The cricket youth department is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, in The Netherlands. In the past two years Quick finished in the no. 1 spot in the national KNCB Club Score Card. More information can be found on: www.quick.nl
