WACA CEO Christina Matthews and Chair Hon. Terry Waldron joined the group of volunteers from across the State, including the Pilbara and Albany.

The volunteers got the opportunity to share their wins with the wider group and also what volunteer engagement and retention strategies their respective clubs have in place.

WACA General Manager Community Cricket Jo Davies said the WACA is very thankful for the tireless efforts of each and every volunteer across the State.

“Volunteers are the lifeblood of our sport, without them many clubs would not survive,” she said

“Volunteering is often a thankless job, so it is important for us to recognise the tireless effort of all our volunteers.

“We are very proud of all our WA Cricket volunteers, so the volunteer breakfast events are a great opportunity to acknowledge some of our hard-working volunteers and discuss the issues they are facing within their clubs and the volunteering space.

“On behalf of the WACA I would like to say thank you to all volunteers for everything you do for cricket in WA.”

At the conclusion of the breakfast the volunteers participated in an exclusive walk on the hallowed turf of Optus Stadium before settling in to watch the country’s best cricket players in the historic Day-Night Test Match against New Zealand.
