Cricket was played at Markham College (the original British School in Lima) from 1960 to 1980. However, very little cricket has been developed in Peru since then. The Peruvian Cricket Association has worked hard over the years to pioneer the development of cricket in many British schools such as Markham College and Harem Bingham and Peruano Britanico.
For many years development was centered around the private schools, but since 2015 Cricket Peru has begun outreach development programs in districts around Lima.
Cricket Peru began to give free classes of cricket in the districts of Magdalena, Pueblo Libre and Jesus Maria in 2015 attempting to use cricket as a tool for social development, beginning its first outreach program in Magdalena in January of 2015. Since then we have worked in Lince, San Juan de Lurigancho, Monterico de Surco, San Miguel, Chorrillos and many more districts over the space of the past 5 years.
