Established in 1983 and located in Meerpur Cantt, Kanpur, J.N.T. Sports Welfare Foundation (formerly known as J.N.T. Organisation) indulged in the promotion of the game of cricket by organizing various tournaments for almost all age groups. We have also been fortunate to have had assistance from some extremely talented national and state players during the last many years.
Being an NGO, J.N.T. Sports Welfare Foundation is not affiliated with any district, state, or central cricket association but our efforts towards the promotion of the game are always being appraised and supported by Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association. Running any youth organisation nowadays has to incorporate so many additional requirements. Cricket is no different and in 2009 J.N.T adopted the BCCI “Safe Hands Policy” and ensure all players, coaches, and managers are Criminal Records Bureau checked. We operate under Community Amateur Sports Club status and ensure the organisation takes issues of equity, ethics, management, and most importantly, the safety of our players very seriously.
Our view of Youth Cricket
We believe that our young members are an essential part of J.N.T. Sports Welfare Foundation and are vital to the organisation’s present and future success. We aim to do all we can to encourage and include younger players and make them feel a valued part of the organisation, irrespective of their age, gender or level of ability, or length of time with the Organisation.
We also expect that youngsters should be able to enjoy their cricket and develop their abilities in a safe environment, free from harassment, bullying, or other risks.
Our priorities for all aspects of youth cricket, including coaching, youth matches, and adult matches involving youngsters are:
- The safety and welfare of the individual
- Enabling youngsters to enjoy the game
- Coaching and encouraging younger players to help them develop their cricketing skills
- Helping children to establish self-confidence, both on and off the field, and develop an enthusiasm for the game of cricket
- Make friends
We expect youth members to behave in a reasonable and sociable way to others, including their peers, coaching staff, and other youth and adult members. Likewise, all adults who have responsibility for youth cricket in any way at J.N.T. Organisation are expected to respect individuals and conduct themselves appropriately.

We provide our players with food, drink, water, or soft (not fizzy) drink during matches to ensure a hygienic environment.
