The Triangle Cricket League (TCL) is a cricket league based around the Triangle Region of North Carolina encompassing Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill. We also have a team in Greenville. The TCL's mission is to play and promote cricket in the Triangle Region amongst both adult and youth players. Most of the teams in TCL were prior and in some cases founding members of the MACC (Mid-Atlantic Cricket Conference). MACC has been in existence since 1997 and has teams based in NC, SC and VA. Information on the MACC can be found here at http://www.macc-cricket.org. In 2009 the Triangle teams decided to leave the MACC and form their own league. A Twenty20 TCL tournament was played in late 2009 and a full season of league games will begin in 2010. The season runs from Spring into late Summer. The TCL has applied for membership in USACA (USA Cricket Association), the national governing body.

The league primarily has players from South Asia although there is a good representation of English, South African, Australian, New Zealander and West Indian players. We sometimes also have American born players particularly in our youth teams. If you wish to participate in the league please contact the team reps on our teams page.
