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 Musa from Cherry Orchard Primary School in Charlton, London Borough of Greenwich.
His concentration and effort has enabled him to make great progress, despite being new to cricket. For a beginner, his batting technique was remarkable.
