Local cricket club bowls them over to claim national award

Bluff Point Strathalbyn Sharks Cricket Club in Western Australia has bowled over the judges and taken out the 2018 WA and National Good Sports club of the year.

The Good Sports awards recognise the inspiring Good Sports clubs and passionate volunteers that are committed to championing a healthier and family-friendly club environment for the local community.

The Geraldton cricket club was part of the West Australian Cricket Association’s (WACA) Alcohol.Think Again Healthy Cricket Program, which is delivered state-wide in partnership with Healthway.

The program aims to create healthier sporting clubs by developing and maintaining policies that support and create environmental and cultural change at the WACA ground, as well as at a District, Community and Country Cricket level.  

Healthway is committed to more West Australians living healthy lifestyles and through increasing healthy eating and physical activity, improving mental health, preventing harm from alcohol, and creating a smoke-free WA.

We congratulate Bluff Point Strathalbyn Sharks Cricket Club for their award and acknowledge their commitment and contribution in helping to create Healthway’s vision of a healthier Western Australia.
