The ground, on the bank of the Hennops River, has been the main home ground for the Irene Villagers Cricket Club since the club's inception in 1965.[1] It has also been used for several non-first-class tournaments since 1998.[2]

The Bangladesh A team played four minor matches there on their tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe in 2015-16.[3] A few weeks later the ground staged its first first-class and List A cricket matches, when Northerns played two home matches there against North West in December 2015. North West won both matches.[4][5]
