The Wendouree Cricket Club have established their first ever girls team in the Ballarat Cricket Association’s Under-13 competition with the support of the Renegades Member Club Program prize money.
The Renegades Member Club Program, which has been running for several years, seeks to engage members of local clubs while building social activity. All clubs that signed up their members this season as Renegades Members went in the running to win a $5,000 cash prize ($2,500 runner up prize) for club program development.
Wendouree were one of those clubs that signed up all their juniors as Renegades’ members, and as a result, they were rewarded with $5,000.
Some of the prize money was also used on playing shirts and caps for the girls’ team, providing the girls with both encouragement and the resources to get out in the middle and play the game that we all love.
The Wendouree U13 girls’ team excitedly took the field for the first time on February 10.
