Profile

Nairobi's Gymkhana Club is the main cricket venue in the country, and the only one which could in any way be described as a major ground. Home to one of Kenya's oldest and most influential clubs, the Gymkhana has hosted colonial and other important matches since the early 1900s, but it really began to develop as Kenya became a serious force in world cricket in the 1990s. Investment in the ground accelerated with ICC grants which enabled it to host the 2000 ICC Champions Trophy, although since then it has suffered from a lack on investment resulting from Kenya's internal problems. The ground itself is a mixture of grass banking and wooden stands, with a modern pavilion on one side and a new media centre, constructed for the 2000 tournament, at one end. As with many such clubs in Kenya, the Gymkhana is home to a variety of other sports as well as providing comfortable accommodation. Situated almost 5,500 feet above sea level, it is one of the highest first-class grounds.

Travel
Nairobi Gymkhana is situated a 20-minute taxi ride and is about 15km from the airport. Parking near the ground is limited.
