Queens Sports Club is a multi-purpose stadium in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. It is used mostly for cricket matches. The stadium holds 13,000. The club is one of two homegrounds for the Matabeleland Cricket Team, which up until recently was captained by the Zimbabwean international opening pace bowler Heath Streak. The other Matabeleland Cricket Team ground in Bulawayo is the Bulawayo Athletic Club.
Queen's Sports Club is Zimbabwe's second ground, and the first being the Harare Sports Club. It is situated close to the city centre, and is one of international cricket's loveliest venues with an old pavilion surrounded by trees which give shade to spectators. Much of the ground consists of grass banking and its capacity of 13,000 is more than enough to cope with demand. Queens Sports Club became Zimbabwe's third Test venue in October 1994.
