Greenwich is famed for its naval history and hosting the Royal Observatory - the place "where time begins" (the meridian line). It is also an area of contrasts with Victorian and Edwardian surrounded by the greenery of Greenwich's Royal Park, pockets of deprivation in east Greenwich and 21st century apartments surrounding the O2 Arena on the formerly industrialised peninsula.
Greenwich Giants community cricket sessions are predominantly for children attending Christchurch, Halstow, James Wolfe, Meridian, Millennium, St Alfege with St Peter's, St Joseph's, St Mary Magdalene Primary Schools.

Each week our coaches identify a PLAYER OF THE WEEK from the 3,000+ children we work with, as a recognition of their talent, efforts or improvement.
This week's PLAYER OF THE WEEK Award goes to Khadija from Ark Globe Primary in Elephant & Castle, Southwark. Khadija’s batting has particularly impressed our coaches - she has combined an excellent technique with a lot of power hitting.
