ALL-ABILITIES CRICKET A HIT
Sydney turned on the sunshine in April for our first ever What Ability Foundation all-abilities cricket clinic at Bankstown Oval.
More than 20 recipients took to the field, as we ‘unlocked’ an inclusive cricketing experience for people living with a disability and their families and sent a message to the community that cricket is for everyone.
Held in conjunction with Cricket NSW, the clinic included bat and ball skills, games and on-the-field activities for recipients to enjoy together with their support workers, siblings and parents.
Children and adults with disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Angelman syndrome and Cerebral Palsy played alongside our athlete ambassador and Sydney Sixers fast bowler, Lauren Cheatle.
The event made headlines with several newspaper articles including an ABC Online profile, and a TV interview with Lauren Cheatle on Fox Sports about her cricketing career and her work as a support worker for What Ability.
We look forward to enjoying your continued support at our all-abilities clinics as we endeavour to unlock more community experiences across the country for more Australians living with a disability and their families.
