About Hawks

 

Hawks cricket club was founded in 2007 by cricket enthusiasts Mukarram Raheel, Bobby Tuli and Deepak Pandey. Since inception, it has grown exponentially in terms of club membership and is currently recognized as one of the largest clubs in Chicagoland with 50+ active members and two teams (Hawks and Knight Hawks) participating in American Cricket Conference (ACC). We are one of the rare clubs with a dedicated home ground at Century Park in Vernon Hills where both teams play league games. 
Additionally our club works closely with the Vernon Hills Park District to run a kids cricket program in the summer that serves the local community. In partnership with the park district we are building the next generation of cricketers in Lake County
