Do you know a cricket legend in your local community who always has their eye on the ball and makes cricket great in your local area?

Specsavers, Official Eyewear and Eye Care partner to Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricket team, is looking for Community Cricket Champions in celebration of the great work of local cricket clubs across Australia.

Bellingen cricket fans are asked to nominate their Community Cricket Champion by explaining in 50 words or less why their local cricket volunteer deserves to be recognised for their hard work, support of the local cricket team and dedication to the sport.

Specsavers will reward a winning Community Cricket Champion in each state, by gifting both the winning nominee, the nominator and the local cricket team with tickets to a Gillette One Day International match in their state and a free eye test at their local Specsavers store.

Specsavers cricket ambassador Ian Healy said he is excited to see the incredible people behind Aussie cricket being recognised through the Specsavers Community Cricket Champion competition.

“Each and every player on the Australian Cricket Team started out playing community cricket, and it’s at the thousands of local cricket clubs around Australia where that love of the game began.

“We’re excited to be working with Specsavers to keep our eyes peeled for the best in community cricket and acknowledge our well deserving local Community Cricket Champions,” he said.

Specsavers will announce five state winners on 2 January 2018, with an overall national winner being crowned Specsavers Australian Community Cricket Champion on 5 February, 2018.

Specsavers Australian Community Cricket Champion will win a visit from Specsavers cricket ambassador and Australian cricket legend, Ian Healy for a skills day at their local club, along with a Cricket Australia memorabilia pack. State finalists will receive 13 tickets to a Gillette ​One Day International match for themselves and their local cricket club, along with a free Specsavers eye test and eyewear.
