WACA Visits Narrikup's Cricket Bat Fence
29 July 2015  

Tony Poad, WACA Game & Market Development General Manager David Clear, WACA Country Cricket Manager Steve Philippe, Narrikup Cricket Club president Aldo Lionetti and Greg Steele.

WACA representatives last week visited Narrikup Cricket Club which is the home of the biggest wooden cricket bat in the southern hemisphere and the unique cricket bat boundary fence.

The Association’s Game and Market Development General Manager David Clear and WACA Country Cricket Manager Steve Philippe donated a signed Kookaburra bat to the club.

The WACA also contributed towards the club's recent installation of cricket nets via the Association's Facility Fund.

The representatives were visiting the Great Southern region to meet with key stakeholders on aligning programs such as MILO T20 Blast.

The club is based halfway between Albany and Mount Barker and recently installed an eight-metre high wooden cricket bat.

The huge cricket bat and boundary fence have received plenty of publicity in recent weeks.

The club are seeking further bat donations for their fence, which needs 2,500 bats to be completed.
