CRICKET SOUTH AFRICA (CSA) and New Balance South Africa have joined hands to ensure that all the youth cricketers from the Standard Bank RPC’s and Hubs programs will have a full set of playing kit for their participation in the various National Age Group Weeks.
New Balance will provide Cricket equipment for 56 boys and girls, which will be a total contribution valued at just under R500 000. CSA will provide for the needs of a further 120 children through their Player Performance Program. A number of other children, who are going to their second week as they move up the age groups, benefited from a similar gesture by New Balance last year. In all, a total of 243 players – boys and girls – from the RPC and Hubs programs have been selected to represent their provincial teams in age group cricket.
