Peet supports the WBBL Aboriginal Match with the Perth Scorchers
The Women’s Big Bash season is in full swing, with the WACA Ground hosting the highest attended match of the WBBL season on Sunday between the Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers.
The match, celebrating Aboriginal culture, included a barefoot circle before play involving the players from the Kambarang Cricket Carnival.
WA Cricket’s annual Kambarang Cricket Carnival hosted over 130 Aboriginal children converging on the Swan Valley Adventure Centre for two days of cricket and cultural learning activities.
As part of Peet’s support of the WA Cricket Foundation’s Aboriginal Leadership Program, we were excited to provide the opportunity to a lucky participant to flip the bat before the match and meet the Captains.
Edwin Peter (pictured) was selected to do the bat flip and enjoyed an incredible experience going out on the field and meeting Scorchers Captain Sophie Devine, and Strikers Captain Tahlia McGrath. He loved showing off the bat to the other players at the Carnival, where they all ‘had a go’ at holding it throughout the day.
The Scorchers team wore their newly designed Aboriginal playing shirt, designed by Nyoongar artist Linda Loo, featuring the Peet branding. At the centre of the design is a swan representing the Boorloo (Perth) area, surrounded by lines and circles demonstrating the Derbal Yerrigan (Swan River) and lakes in the region.
Peet also unveiled its Aboriginal themed LED signage, designed by Chloe Watego, incorporating artwork from Peet's Reconciliation Action Plan launched earlier this year.
