CRICKET

From its humble beginnings in 1891, the Queen’s Park Cricket Club (QPCC) has been an iconic cricket arena recognized the world over. Now celebrating its 128th anniversary, the QPCC has been home to numerous great cricketing personalities whose names are recognized internationally including Victor and Jeff Stollmeyer, Michael “Joey” Carew, Charlie and Bryan Davis, Willie Rodriguez, Deryck Murray, and none other than Mr Brian Charles Lara – double world record holder, genius left-handed batsman, and QPCC member whose name now adorns our Club Pavilion.

We continue to be the leading club in Trinidad & Tobago, with six teams in the domestic local league, a development programme, an Under-16 team and a coaching school for young aspiring cricketers. These programmes have produced internationally acclaimed players such as Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, Darren Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Shannon Gabriel, Anderson Phillip and Khary Pierre just to name a few.
