The Mzansi hawks was born through the inception of the LPL. It was known as the Crescent Hawks. The name Crescents comes from the Crescents cricket club which was officially formed in 1938. It’s humble beginnings formed in a primarily Indian township called Vrededorp in Johannesburg. From its inception, both informally before 1938 and officially, it has always been more than a cricket club. It is a kinship that goes beyond the field. A family of brothers and sisters rom vastly different backgrounds brought together by the love of this beautiful game.
After 10 years of the LPL cricket, in 2020 the name changed to The Mzansi Hawks. A name that encapsulates a greater spectrum of society but built around the same values and culture. The Mzansi Hawks has gone beyond cricket. We are now creating opportunities in Cricket, Hockey and Netball. An exciting time lies ahead in the years to come for The Mzansi Hawks. We are two time winners of the LPL and are affectionately known as “The Peoples Team”.
