Compton Cricket Club

http://www.comptoncricketclub.org/




The "Homies and the POPz" Compton Cricket Club, (CCC) is club based in Los Angeles USA. The CCC Homies & the POPz is the only all American born cricket team in the world today.

The Homies & POPz dubbed "America's Team" and global "US Ambassadors" of Good Will and Peace of the sporting world of Cricket, plays amateur competition in a local Los Angeles leagues, called Los Angeles Social Cricket Alliance, as well as exhibition matches wherever they can.

Actually, the H&Pz has won the leagues Cup Championship twice. Pretty good for an American team competing against folks who have the sport all their lives such as ex-patriots from India, England, West Indies, Pakistan, Australia, South Africa, et al.


As Ambassadors of Good Will, Civility and Peace, The Mission of the Homies & POPz is to:

Curb the negative effects of gang activities amongst the youth of Compton, the USA and throughout the world and...
Address homelessness and poverty through the principles and ethics of Cricket
Encourage and promote civility, good and productive citizenship
Bring Cricket to America, through its inner cities, harnessing the raw talent waiting to be future US cricketers.

Re: Compton Cricket Club

Cricket needs more nations involved, countries just end up playing each other over and over.

Re: Compton Cricket Club

Good story!

Cricket was the # 2 team sport in the USA up to the year 1900. It would be great to see it become popular here again.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
