 The British Officers Cricket Club

Welcome to the BOCC

The British Officers Cricket Club appears in cricket history back in the 'Golden Age' of cricket in Philadelphia in the late 1800's. However, as an affiliate of The British Officers Club of Philadelphia founded in 1925, regular games were played until WWII. The BOCC was re-born in 1986-thanks to co-founders, the late Peter Stone and Alfred Reeves. Since that time the club has been a major force in rekindling the game in Philadelphia, and now enjoys a playing membership of over 50 cricketers.

The BOCC plays cricket for fun, for love of the game, yet competitively, with a will to win. The BOCC places high importance upon social interaction and a membership willing to contribute effort on and off the field. The BOCC places no restriction upon membership, save that of gentlemanly conduct. Club management is democratic and bound by its Constitution. The BOCC shall strive to uphold the notion of Cricket first, team second and the individual last.

The BOCC is a co-founder and a proud supporter and participant of the Philadelphia International Cricket Festival, Greater Philadelphia Cricket League and Philadelphia Cricket League. Its commitment to the joys of touring includes touring with the wandering Gentlemen of Philadelphia side.

The BOCC plays in the Philadelphia Cricket League, goes on tour to Toronto over the July 4 weekend and with friendly games all season long, plays an aggregate of over 60 matches a season. We toured the UK a few times and in future we intend to tour alternate years. Additionally, the club has a traditional pre-season curry party, Annual Awards Dinner and other events such as a family-friendly pool party in the summer. There are organized net practices at Haverford College from May thru September.
