A brief rundown of the cricket venues within and around Zimbabwe.

Test/ODI venues

Harare Sports Club (Harare, Zimbabwe)
Harare Sports Club is a favourite among fans and players alike, due to the Keg restaurant right next to the field and the lively atmosphere. The ground held its first Test - the first in Zimbabwe - in 1992 against India and two years later had their first Test win at the ground. In 1956 the ground held its highest recorded capacity - 26,000 - when Rhodesia played the MCC. Now, the maximum capacity is 10,000 although this can be increased with temporary seating, but the capacity is rarely tested. HSC as it is known, is neighboured by the presidential palace and the Royal Harare Golf Club. Most of Zimbabwe's cricket is played at this ground, and as far as international cricket goes Harare is the most active city in the world. In domestic cricket, the ground is home to the Northerns Logan Cup side, and the Harare Sports Club side in the National League and Vigne Cup. Prior to 1982, the ground was known as Salisbury Sports Club.

Bulawayo Athletic Club (Bulawayo, Zimbabwe)
BAC, as it is affectionately known, was the second Test venue in Zimbabwe. It has hosted no Tests since, due to a poor crowd showing in its only Test in 1992. It is the home ground of the successful National League team Bulawayo Athletic Club. In 2007, fire caused US$400,000 worth of damage to the bar and games room. BAC has a capacity of over 12,000 spectators.

Queens Sports Club (Bulawayo, Zimbabwe)
QSC is Zimbabwe's second major ground. The ground capacity of between 9,000 and 13,000 bas been more than sufficient in recent times. In the Bulawayo Metropolitan League for club cricket, this is the home ground for Queens Sports Club.

ODI only venues

Kwekwe Sports Club (Kwekwe, Zimbabwe)
Kwekwe Sports Club has held just one ODI, versus Kenya in late 2002. Kwekwe Sports Club fields a club team in the local Midlands league.
