British Officers Cricket Club: Home

Welcome to British Officers Cricket Club

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, Alan Stuart 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 80 cricketers including a thriving youth section.

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 strives 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 in the Philadelphia International Cricket Festival.

The BOCC plays in the Greater Philadelphia Cricket League on Saturdays and Sundays and have qualified for the playoffs in the last two years. We also go 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. BOCC has also toured the UK in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010, most recently Sarasota Florida in February, 2019. Touring is part of the club both travelling and hosting visiting sides; more tours are expected in upcoming years. Additionally, the club has a traditional pre-season curry party, Annual Awards Dinner and other fun/family friendly social events. There are organized net practices at our home ground which has a unique two side by side fields, a club house at Evansburg State Park in Collegeville from April thru September.
