Bats and balls alongside books

There'll be more bats and balls alongside books in schools as part of Cricket Australia’s new Sporting Schools Cricket programme. 

Sporting Schools brings schools and sports together to deliver quality sporting programmes that inspire primary school students to develop a lifelong interest in sport. 

Cricket Australia’s Sporting Schools pilot is one of 12 pilot initiatives to be rolled out across Australia as part of Sporting Schools. 

Watch Australian players Steve Smith, David Warner, Alyssa Healy and Gurinder Sandhu in action with children in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs. 


Sporting Schools officially kicks off on 1 July 2015. Any Australian primary school can join the programme.
