In partnership with the Lord’s Taverners, we are staging the 2020 Lord’s Taverners ACT Women’s Cricket Breakfast, which is taking place at the National Press Club of Australia on Thursday, 27 February.

“The excitement is really building for the Women’s T20 World Cup, which promises to be an outstanding festival of cricket from 21 February - 8 March inclusive,” said Lord’s Taverners ACT President, Ric Smith.

“We are fortunate that Manuka Oval is hosting five matches in the tournament across three days from 26-28 February, including Australia playing Bangladesh on the evening of Thursday, 27 February.

“On the morning of the Australian match, the Lord’s Taverners ACT – in partnership with Cricket ACT – is pleased to be holding a Women’s Cricket Breakfast to recognise the achievements of the Australian team to date and preview its upcoming matches in the T20 World Cup.

“There will be a number of high-profile speakers at the breakfast, including two Australian players, and funds raised will go towards the work the Lord’s Taverners does supporting local young and disadvantaged cricketers and other athletes, and Cricket ACT initiatives which benefit cricket across Canberra and surrounding regions.”

Confirmed speakers at the charity breakfast are Leah Poulton (former Australian player/High Performance Manager – Women’s Cricket, Cricket Australia), Matthew Mott (Coach – Australia) and Mel Jones OAM (commentator/former player/Cricket Australia board member).

Our CEO James Allsopp, commented “The Lord’s Taverners ACT have been great supporters of cricket in the region for an extended period.”

“With their support, we have seen extraordinary growth in participation and playing opportunities for women and girls in the ACT and greater region.”

“It is fantastic to be partnering with them for the Women’s Cricket Breakfast as we celebrate the achievements of the Australian women’s cricket team and the evolution of women’s sport on the morning of their important T20 World Cup clash against Bangladesh.”
