Cricket in Us – About the Project
Background to Project
The Club were successful in receiving support from the Heritage Fund to collate information about participation in cricket amongst South Asian heritage communities in Preston.
The Project will run from October 2006 – March 2008.
The ‘Cricket in Us’ project will identify 200 people who played cricket from the 1950s onwards in Preston from the South Asian heritage community.
The Project will look at the following:
1) What motivated the participants to play cricket.
2) Where did participants play, why, who with and for how long.
3) What were the highs and lows of their participation.
4) How much did participating in cricket help towards their settling into Preston.
5) What thoughts they have of cricket within the South Asian heritage community.
The findings of the research will be presented through exhibitions at a number of community venues, sports clubs, events, aswell as appearing on this website.
The information will also be stored at the North West Archives.
