The Southern Connecticut Cricket Association was formed in 2001 when six teams from Bridgeport, Norwalk, Danbury, New Haven & Waterbury decided to leave the Connecticut Cricket League and form their own league due to the increasing demand of cricket enthusiasts in the region of Southern Connecticut.
Connecticut attacts many new immigrants from south Asia and the Caribean, and the sport of cricket is a part of the rich culture they bring.As seen in the recent August 2005 edition of CPTV program 'Positively Connecticut', cricket now has an established presence in many of this state's central and southern towns.New teams of players from Jamaica, Pakistan, India, Australia, Guyana and the U.K. are springing up every year Greenwich to Danbury to Cheshire to Hardford.
On most summer weekends, cricket's white-clad players, their families and supporters can be seen bowling, batting and having fun all across the state.
Twelve clubs, averaging about 25 playing members apiece, registered by SCTCA for the 2007 season.Indications are that many more will be joining the association in years to come.
