“The pandemic and subsequent recession have had a severe impact on rural areas in Australia as well as the communities we support in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, South Africa, Tanzania, Indonesia and Afghanistan. We’re proud to have been able to help people in these cricket-playing countries complete their tertiary education, and we are incredibly grateful for the ongoing community support which allows us to continue to do this.”

Ambassador, Justin Langer added, “I’m a huge supporter of Batting for Change. We’ve all got amazing memories of playing backyard cricket, so the 31st of January is a great opportunity to get all your family and friends together and raise some important funds for some unbelievable initiatives.”

David Vaux, Chair of The LBW Trust said “The funds raised from National Backyard
Cricket will be split equally between much-needed grants for community libraries across Australia and the LBW Trust’s overseas education programs.”

The Governor-General, David Hurley, will be hosting a game of backyard cricket at Government House in Canberra on February 4, where Batting for Change will announce total funds raised.

Event registrations are now open

While gathering in large numbers can be challenging due to current COVID-19 restrictions, Batting for Change encourages smaller groups of immediate family, friends, workmates and more to gather outdoors and enjoy a fun afternoon of cricket together. While the official launch date is January 31, anyone can arrange a game any time during the month of January and it will still be considered part of National Backyard Cricket Day.
