A Huge Success and Growing
Cricket is the second-most popular sport in the world. Cricket can be enjoyed equally by boys and girls, almost any age, and doesn’t require players to have a certain height or speed to succeed.
In 2012, BBGC introduced cricket to boys and girls between the ages of 6 – 15 years. The program was a huge success. We had a total of about 50 participants, and most of them were completely new to cricket. The program kept growing with 101 kids in 2013 and 122 kids in 2014. On the last day of the 2014 program, we had four concurrent parents vs. kids matches at Samuel Ogle Middle School.
The dates for 2016 BBGC Summer Cricket Program have not been announced yet, but are typically from mid-June through the end of July.
