SPORTING HERITAGE FOR OUR TIMES
Established in 1868 as the Yokohama Cricket Club (YCC), YC&AC is Japan’s oldest sports and social club.
YCC’s earliest members maintained a magnificent cricket ground in the middle of Yokohama Park and made this available to other sports clubs in the fledgling port city. In 1884, YCC members voted to absorb the Yokohama Foot Ball (rugby), Athletics, Baseball and Tennis Clubs to form the multi-sport YC&AC as we know it today.
In 1912 YC&AC moved to its present location in Yamate, an expansive hilltop sanctuary just 45 minutes by car from Tokyo (Shibuya). Here the Club continues to offer the same rich sporting and social experience of days gone by, in a safe, family friendly, international environment.
