Kendal James - Community Development Officer

As part of YCF I am responsible for increasing engagement in South Asian Communities in Leeds. As part of this I am looking to reach new players and develop a greater interest in cricket whilst still maintaining lapsed players in both formal and informal cricket structures. My overall aim to increase participation and integrate communities with cricket.

Prior to joining the Foundation, I worked as a School Games Organiser and School Sport Coordinator in Rotherham, which is heavily focused on developing and increasing schools and young people’s participation in a range a difference sports.

In my free time I play Basketball for a Woman’s team in Division 2 National League and I enjoy socialising with family and friends.
