CCC has from the establishment of the club endeavored to follow a policy of integration based on social responsibility and services. In CCC all are equal, and all are equally welcome – regardless of nationality, religion or culture. And all should feel welcome. Management believes that one of the secrets behind the club’s success is that many feel that their cricket club is more than a sport club, but also a club that provides help and support on a wide range of social, development and training educational areas. In this context, the team works closely with the social ministry.
It is in many cases succeeded CCC to attract many youngsters who have previously been described as “problem youth”. Put simply, as the club has presented a concept that reads: “If you want to get rid of aggression, so come and show it on the cricket ground, where there is plenty of space and opportunity, and you will find other contacts and friends and an environment which is most promising “. It turns out, moreover, that several of the youngsters are excellent cricketers. After having an “environmental shift” they’ve gained greater self-respect because of good guidance and persuasion, moreover also because they have a natural heritage and approach.
In summer we play at COPENHAGEN CRICKET GROUND, in winter we play indoors on EnergiCenter Voldparken . Our club is located in beautiful surroundings in the heart of Brønshøj, and offers the opportunity to participate in a fun and friendly sports in a safe and comfortable environment. As a whole, the club aims to provide a service that goes beyond what you can expect and imagine in a more commercial environment.
CCC’s ambition is to make Brønshøj-Husum and including the area Tingbjerg one of cricket centres in Denmark . In addition, we also want to use the cricket game as a lever for successful integration.
