Cricket is currently one of the fastest growing sports in America. The sport is starting to be recognized in its own important culture and background, instead of just “British baseball”. Cricket is beginning to be taught to students in high school gym classes, more minor league teams are being created ,and adults that grew up playing in their home country are having the opportunity to participate in a team once again.

This year, the event is taking place on September 17th This event attracts 18 teams from several local clubs from Upper Dublin, Lansdale, Downingtown, Doylestown, Philadelphia, Chalfont among other areas in the Tri County. It is an event for every kind of audience, with a playground next to the field, snacks available, people curious about the sport, people who just want to cheer the players on, or hardcore cricket fans.

This dedicated club holds its fifth annual cricket tournament this year on . The team is expanding their reach to the youth by having a sports clinic for those interested in experiencing the sport first hand. This tournament allows families and friends to participate and explore the game. This event continues to grow every year – a reflection of the vibrancy of this sport and the communities that have embraced it. Cricket is truly a sport that brings people together.

Have been writing about cricket since 2019 especially since the local Indian community has been very interested in pursuing the sport and for the first time I was introduced to the sport in the school gym. In the US, known as "British Baseball"
