My other life in volunteering is as President of Bankstown District Cricket Club, a club steeped in tradition from Thomson and Pascoe to the Waugh twins and many more first-class players. As a Club we have supporting the development and growth of cricket in Uganda for well over a decade through providing them, on annual basis, a container load of new and used cricket gear from suppliers, other clubs and individuals from all around the State. We could not have done this without the support of our extraordinary volunteer group and sponsors such as the Bankstown District Sports Club.
As a Club we were overwhelmed with joy when we recently learned that Uganda had qualified for the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup. We can proudly say that we had some small part in creating that success and growing the game, that I and many others love so much, in emerging cricket nations like Uganda.

Anthony Telfer in The Clubhouse with Phillip Melville and Will Harding - Northern Districts Special Olympics Program

Phillip Melville, a current NSW O50’s player and representative of Australia at O50’s level, leads this remarkable program.

Last, Friday, I attended the Cricket Victoria Premier Cricket Awards night at the MCG, representing Prahran Cricket Club.
It was a wonderful occasion to reflect on an amazing 2022/23 season and soak in the camaraderie with other club administrators, players, media persons, managers, and board members from across the premier cricket ecosystem. A plethora of awards were given away with the winners exemplifying cricketing values and serving as inspiring role models for the others in the room.
My club won two awards - the Women's competition Spirit of Cricket and the Women's Under-18 Player of the Tournament. Looking back at the men's competition, we came agonisingly short of the Club Championship, finishing second after the last home & away game, and four premiership flags after falling short in the finals. Cricket reinforced the importance of going the extra mile with these results and we start all over again come summer 2023/24.
