Six of the state’s most dedicated and passionate volunteers were yesterday recognised in the WACA's 2017-18 WA Cricket Volunteer of the Year Awards at the Gillette One-Day International at Optus Stadium
The awards provide an opportunity for the WACA and wider cricket community to show their appreciation for the work undertaken by volunteers.
WACA General Manager – Game & Market Development Jo Davies said volunteers were integral to the fabric of cricket in WA.
“It is wonderful to see so many volunteers being nominated by their local clubs and having the opportunity to be recognised in front of their peers,” Ms Davies said.
“Without the dedication, commitment and passion of the thousands of volunteers who give up their time each year, community cricket would not exist.
“We congratulate the award winners and nominees for their achievements and ongoing dedication to cricket in WA.”
