Boost for Kadoma Cricket Club

HARARE - An Australian-based sporting goods manufacturer is set to donate cricket gear and equipment to the Kadoma Cricket Club (KCC) today as part of efforts to grow the interest of the game in the mining town.

Ninja Sporting is partnering with KCC in an event being supported by local and international organisations to build the community’s interest and participation in cricket.

“We are proud to be working with Kadoma Cricket Club on a project that aims to increase participation in a game that has given us so much pride and joy,” Ninja Sporting owner Josh Banks said.

Despite a relatively small population, Kadoma has produced a number of talented cricketers who have gone on to be selected for international duty.

The event is being held at KCC where Ninja Sporting will be donating a significant amount of cricket equipment to the club.

“This is to provide both senior and junior players with the opportunity to use top quality equipment in order to build an interest and desire to play sport,” Banks said.

“We have received an incredible amount of support from people and organisations across the world to which we are incredibly grateful.  They have donated time, product and services.

“We encourage members of the community to come along and join in the fun. We have been fortunate enough to secure support from internationally recognised producer Abra Simzz who will coordinate music for the day, a braai will be running and there will be a cricket match between the kids and adults.”

The Melbourne-based Ninja Sporting manufactures and sells cricket equipment worldwide.

“Since initiating this project in June this year, we have gained the support of a number of people across a wide variety of industries in Australia, the UK and Zimbabwe,” Banks said.
"This project is about identifying an opportunity to build a sense of community through sport and engage with those who may not be active in sport or had much exposure to cricket.”
