About Us

Being in the thick business of cricket promotion among the under 12 years boys from 1976 to 1999 at Cuddapah (A.P) and Chennai city , Mr.M.K.Iqbal was embarrassed to observe that there was no cricket activities for boys under 14 years in Saligramam and Virugambakkam neighbourhood. This thought touched his consciousness when he settled down in Ratnu Nagar of Virugambakkam area during 1999.

With the help of some parents he started Children’s Cricket Academy at Jayagopal Garodia Girls School near Saligramam in 1999 and after a year the academy was shifted to Avichi School where Mr.AVM.K.Shanmugam allowed Mr.M.K.Iqbal to serve for young and budding cricketers.

In view of this development, We (CCF) changed our cricket academy’s name from “Children’s Cricket Foundation” to “AVM CRICKET ACADEMY” a move which was more appropriate to show our regards for the gesture of Mr. AVM.K.Shanmugam. Thus AVM CRICKET ACADEMY emerged in Feb 2000.

During the early days of camp at Avichi School ground there were around 70 boys. Mr.AVM.K.Shanmugam gave valuable support to the academy which helped it to grow by leaps and bounds. Due to excellent team work and dedication from the coaches, the camp became popular and the members swelled up to 250 during June-March and 400 in April-May from the year 2010 onwards.

AVM Cricket Academy has been conducting its premier tournament “AVM Rajeswari Rolling Trophy” for several years and succeeded in bringing up good quality cricketers every year. AVM Cricket Academy has set high standards by imparting discipline, values of life, leadership qualities in students besides coaching the cricketing skills.
