Hindu Premier League

The Hindu Premier League was initiated in 2017 to bring South Australian Hindu Communities together through cricket. This was as a result of resolution passed at the 5th Australian National Hindu Conference organised in Brisbane, Queensland in August 2016. At the conference it was resolved that we need to offer sporting activities to engage our communities especially the new arrivals.

The first Hindu Premier League was a one-day tournament organised in Ridge Park Oval with the support of the Unley City Council between four teams:
* Adelaide Kannada Sangha
* Adelaide Nepal
* Adelaide Indian Student Society and
* BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir (Winner)

After the successful implementation of the first HPL, we are planning to have the competition expand to include 12 teams in 2018, with various nations participating including: Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Nepal.

The Hindu Premier Leagues represents the pluralistic and accepting roots of Sanatan Dharma in South Australia.
