Bank in to bat for clubs

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

TOWNSVILLE cricket clubs have a few weeks left to ap­ply for a Com­mBank Cricket Club Spon­sor­ship as the ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line nears.

This is the first time that clubs will be able to ap­ply for a two- year spon­sor­ship deal from Com­mBank, in­clud­ing $ 2000 worth of fund­ing each year.

As well as the fi­nan­cial sup­port, clubs will also re­ceive new cricket gear, such as train­ing balls and stumps, and other equip­ment, such as shade mar­quees and ground mark­ers, to use on game days.

Aus­tralian Test crick­eter Ell­yse Perry en­cour­aged all lo­cal clubs to ap­ply for the spon­sor­ship.

“I owe so much to the sup­port and guid­ance I re­ceived from my lo­cal cricket club when I was first start­ing out but we of­ten for­get that grass­roots clubs need our help in re­turn,” Perry said.

“This spon­sor­ship pro­gram from the Com­mBank Cricket Club will make a big dif­fer­ence to clubs in need, so they can con­tinue the great work they do within their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open to lo­cal cricket clubs across Aus­tralia un­til Au­gust 9.
