Cricket's origin is obscure. Evidence suggests it was played in England in the 12th-13th cent., and it was popular there by the end of the 17th cent. By the mid-18th cent. the aristocracy had adopted the game. In 1744 the London Cricket Club produced what are recognizably the rules of modern cricket.

There are many sports that originated in England. Cricket, rugby, curling, and badmiton have a British beginning. Also modern tennis has English roots.

It originated from the Tudor game of Real Tennis which is quite similar to modern day squash.
