Whitechapel is the heart of London's East End, synonymous with poverty, overcrowding and crime during the Victorian era. The area has also seen waves of immigration including French Huguenots, Irish, European Jews and most recently a thriving Bangladeshi community that is centred around Brick Lane. At Whitechapel's western extremity is the traditional "square mile" of the City of London which is dominated by companies in the finance and insurance sectors.
Whitechapel Wolves community cricket session are predominantly for children attending Canon Barnett, Christ Church, Kobi Nazrul, Osmani, St Anne's, Sir John Cass Primary, Stewart Headlam and Thomas Buxton 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 Humaira from Christchurch Primary School in Brick Lane, Spitalfields, London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Humaira's flair for cricket, and her understanding of the game, has really impressed our coaches.
