In 1994, VRA became one of just few clubs on the European mainland to have a professional grass square (10 pitches). In the years since it has successfully proven its high level of playing quality. A practice square with 10 pitches and nets and also a dedicated cricket indoor hall with 3 pitches and nets complete the facilities. VRA often is the home base for international top level matches, for example:
