The Caribbean cricket club was established in 1948, being the first Caribbean cricket club set up in the UK. It was created by the Jamaican society in Leeds as a social gathering for mainly West Indian men, although predominately those from Jamaica. The club now has 3 senior teams, which moved to Central Yorkshire Cricket Club in 2010, and 4 junior teams which are currently in the Wetherby League and Leeds League respectively. The senior teams train on Fridays and play Saturdays and Sundays, whilst the junior teams train on Saturdays and play Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.


Since then the club has expanded and evolved inviting people from all ages and sex to take part in social and sporting activities. A group that has formed from the cricket club is Republic, both male and female football teams which focus on equality and anti racism, traveling around Europe raising awareness. Semi professional cricketers have don the whites at Caribbean’s Stuart Williams Dave Joseph and Cory Collimore, who went on to play for the West Indies team.
In 2007, a women’s group was formed to organise fundraising events and “put a women’s touch to the club”.


The grounds for the club is situated 2 miles north of the city centre on Scott Hall Road.
