When it comes to grass roots development of cricket the BPL leads from the front. For almost a decade the BPL has offered youth cricket to kids from all walks of life. Our approach is fun based attracting a vast majority of players and then getting cricket into their school programs. The BPL has cricket programs in many schools, however recently the BPL has brought cricket to the British International school of Chicago in Lincoln Park.
For those living in the Chicago area you may know about the ‘after school matters’ program. The BPL was successful in launching cricket into Maggie Daley’s organization and exposed hundreds of kids to the sport. We strive to develop cricket at the grass roots level. We believe that is the only way we will get cricket to become an American sport.
