Disabled cricketers batting for inclusion
Posted on: Sat 9 Feb 2019
Last month, Geelong hosted the annual National Cricket Inclusion Championships, which showcased cricketers with multiple disabilities competing in three divisions: blind/vision impaired, deaf/hearing impaired and intellectual disability.
In its third consecutive year, more than 200 talented players vied to win a title under each division, which included the South Australian deaf team winning comfortably against Victoria by ten wickets.
Manager David Penn spoke to De-Stigmatised‘s Jarad and Aiden about how this competition could be a positive step toward promoting inclusivity in sports, as well as talking about his own personal associations with the game.
