Most home matches are played at "Accies" or New Anniesland.
Most games are played on turf wickets - the Accies wickets are widely regarded as some of the very best in Scotland and are prepared by groundsman Robert Cheape, who was voted Cricket Scotland Groundsman of the Year in 2004, and his team.
New Anniesland regularly plays host to representative matches, including a number of full internationals as well as games involving junior Scotland and West District sides.
Accies hosted four matches at New Anniesland during the 2006 European Championships - Israel v Norway, France v Norway, Scotland v Denmark and the final of Division 2 between Norway and Jersey.
During the 2000 European Championships Greece and Portugal both played against Israel in the second division.
In the event of turf wickets being unavailable, games can be played on one of Accies' 2 artificial wickets.
