The day was a money can’t buy experience for the group of volunteers and coaches from the metro south region who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to help grow and deliver cricket in their local communities.

WACA Area Manager – Metro South Alan Singer said;

“This event is just a small token of our enormous appreciation for the tireless work our volunteers do day in day out in our strong cricket communities and we look forward to providing more experiences like this in the future.”

Eight junior cricket matches were played earlier in the day and for some participants it was the first time they had set foot on the turf of the iconic venue.

It was an amazing opportunity for 10-year-old Kushleen Singh and her father Param couldn’t be more thrilled for her.

“It is a great feeling seeing her out there wearing pads, a helmet and batting gloves. She has been incredibly excited ever since she found out she was playing here, especially after what was going to be her first cricket match last weekend was washed out,” Mr Singh said.

WACA Area Manager – Metro North Mark Sanders said;

“Being able to access the home of cricket provides an opportunity to recognise the amazing people behind the scenes who are the driving force of our great game.”
