CIRCLE Alliance Bank has provided $1,500 to support the Sunshine Heights Cricket Club’s progressive Good Sports Program.

The funds will enable the club to meet the increasing demand for women to participate in the sport by establishing a women’s team.

The Good Sports Program was introduced into the Sunshine Heights Cricket Club during 1996 and has expanded throughout the years to form the foundation for its Cultural Change Program. There are now 300 participants using the Club along with their families, friends and supporters.

Both programs have enabled the Sunshine Heights Cricket Club to embrace the changing demographics in the area over the past 17 years. From its traditional foundations, the demographic started to shift during the 1960s and 1970s, when a significant number of players joined from Greek, Italian, Maltese and Polish backgrounds. This transformation continued with newer members from Asian, African and sub-continent backgrounds. In addition to European migrants, the biggest increases in participants have been from India, South Sudan, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

'Cricket Victoria is thrilled to find a progressive club which already has a well-established program with potential to grow. The work that Sunshine Heights is undertaking should be highly commended,' said Annie Hateley, Community Program Manager, Cricket Victoria.
