The Grassroots Cricket Fund has been established by Australia’s cricketers to strengthen grassroots cricket in this country for generations to come. The fund will commit up to $30 million from professional Australian cricket player payments to be invested to support and strengthen Australian community cricket.
The players, the Australian Cricketers’ Association and Cricket Australia are working in partnership to deliver the Fund, focusing on providing equipment grants and playing and training facilities to clubs across Australia.
This will ensure community cricket clubs around the country receive much-needed investment to reinforce their position as pillars for local communities that offer welcoming and inclusive environments for players of all abilities, fans, umpires, officials and volunteers.
