The Masvingo Sports Club is a cricket venue with first-class status in Masvingo. It was the home ground to one of Zimbabwe's provincial cricket sides, Southern Rocks, until the team's disbandment after the 2013-14 season. The ground has hosted several first class, List A and Twenty20 matches.

In 2012-13 at the Masvingo Sports Club, Mountaineers dismissed Southern Rocks for 58, leaving themselves a target of 64 for victory, but Southern Rocks in turn dismissed Mountaineers for 26 to win by 37 runs.[1] Two players share the ground record score of 217: Brendan Taylor scored 217 for Mid West Rhinos against Southern Rocks in 2009-10, and Dan Housego scored 217 not out for Mountaineers against Southern Rocks in 2013-14.[2]
