The foundation stone of the first Clubhouse was laid on 18 January 1908 by the President and benefactor, Sir Hormusjee N. Mody, who was later presented with an engraved silver trowel to mark the occasion. The Kowloon Cricket Club Pavilion was opened by the Governor H.E. Sir Frederick Lugard on 11 July 1908.[1]

Due to World War II, the club did not operate between 1941 and 1946.

The club competed for the Hancock Memorial Shield after 1946.
