Cricket Wellington renews Pathways partnerships

Cricket Wellington is delighted to announce that it has renewed its partnerships with riders&elephants and Silvester Clark, as Major and Official sponsors of pathways cricket.

The 2022/23 season will be the second year both partners have supported the Cricket Wellington pathways, helping nurture the next generation of cricketers who aim to represent Wellington and New Zealand.

“We couldn’t be more proud to support the next generation of Wellington cricketers,” said riders&elephants founder Jeremy Dean.

“Cricket has given me so much in my life and being able to give back to the game and association like so many generous volunteers did when I was growing up is such a privilege.”

“Silvester Clark is really pleased to be continuing our association with Cricket Wellington,” said Silvester Clark managing director Scott Miller.

“Cricket Wellington has a lot of synergies with our company values, such as professionalism, bringing the best out of our people, giving people opportunities while having a drive to be the best in our field.

‘We have always supported sports and the people involved in them, so it’s pleasing to be able to give something back to the community in an area of interest to our staff.

“Silvester Clark was also the consulting engineer on several award-winning projects at the Cello Basin Reserve, including the seismic strengthening of the historic museum grandstand and the new Ewen Chatfield Player’s Pavilion.

“It is great for our people to work on projects that shape the home of cricket in New Zealand.”

The support from both partners means Cricket Wellington can continue to provide a fully resourced pathway development structure for its most promising players among all age groups.

Cricket Wellington general manager Liz Green said she was grateful to both partners for their support.

“We have seen considerable growth in the professionalism of our pathways programme in the last year and the support of riders&elephnats and Silvester Clark has been instrumental in helping us achieve that,” said Green.

“Pathways cricket is often the level where our young players begin to harbour their ambitions in the game, and we’re so happy to have such engaged partners supporting Cricket Wellington and our participants with their goals in the game.”
