Caribbean Cricket Club was the first Caribbean Cricket club set up in the UK. It was established in 1948 by the Jamaica Society in Leeds as a social gathering for mainly West Indian men, although predominately those from Jamaica.
It now has 3 senior teams, which moved to Central Yorkshire Cricket League in 2010, and 4 junior teams, which are in Wetherby Leauge and Leeds league respectively.
In 2007 Caribbean Cricket Club’s 1st & 2nd teams both won Leeds West Riding league and also the 20/20 festival cup.
That same year a women’s group was formed to organise fundraising events and to “put a women’s touch to the club”.
The ground is situated 2 miles north of the city centre
