Wendouree Cricket Club is proud to be associated with

"Cricket Without Boundaries"


CWB is a program that was started by some very committed and dedicated people from the Wendouree Cricket Club and the wider Wendouree Cricket Club family.  The program started when we realised how much pre-loved cricket gear many families had accumulated over the years. 

At Wendouree Cricket Club many of our families are fortunate enough to be able to provide our kids with cricket gear whenever they need it. As kids grow out of cricket gear quickly there is often much pre-loved cricket gear that is still in good condition that is no longer used by our kids.

CWB collects pre-loved cricket gear (and purchases new gear where needed to complete kits) and distributes the equipment to local indigenous children and those in remote communities to give them the opportunity to enjoy playing cricket.

In 2015 we sent a number of cricket kits to the remote indigenous community of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. 

In August 2016 we sent another huge amount of cricket gear including bats, pads, helmets and clothing to Darwin for distribution by NT Cricket to local indigenous communities.

The CWB team are currently busily collecting more cricket gear and planning our next project.  We are planning a trip to India in January 2017 where we will visit a number of orphanages and distribute more cricket gear to the children there.  We also plan to run several cricket clinics for the kids and no doubt play endless cricket for a few days while there!

This is an ambitious project by the CWB team, but the planning is well advanced.   If you, your family, friends or a local business would like to contribute to the CWB cause, please email Natarsha Williams at natscottw@gmail.com

We are always happy to accept donations of new or pre-loved cricket gear - we are also happy to accept cash donations that allow us to buy new items that we need for the cricket kits or to help pay for the cost of freight for the kits.
