Narrikup Cricket Club's fence made entirely out of bats
Narrikup Cricket Club in West Australia’s Great Southern region have erected the biggest wooden cricket bat in the southern hemisphere at the club’s home ground.
The club, based halfway between Albany and Mount Barker, have previously built a boundary fence made entirely made out of cricket bats.
Perth-based Bradbury Cricket Bats donated the eight-metre high bat, which was erected on the weekend, standing proudly next to the club house and alongside the fence.
The cricket bat fence is believed to be the only of its kind in the world and is largely thanks to donation from other clubs.
Test cricketer Joe Burns donated a signed bat which was auctioned in an effort to raise funds for the project, undertaken by local volunteers led by Tony Poad who put together the original gate.
The club completed their fifth panel of the fence last month and are calling for more donations.
