Australia’s Cricket Without Borders team has just completed a one week tour of Vanuatu that included matches against the Vanuatu National Women’s team and the handing over of much needed sporting equipment to the Cricket Vanuatu Association.

Cricket Without Borders were involved in school competitions and training sessions with the Vanuatu National Cricket team. They also visited schools, children with disabilities and communities to learn more about Vanuatu.

The Australian High Commission hosted an afternoon tea for the Cricket Without Borders team from Australia and the Vanuatu National Women’s Cricket team at the Australian High Commission during the tour. The cricket players had the opportunity to meet the High Commissioner and to hear about what Australia is doing to support sport and communities in Vanuatu.

Australia has been supporting sports for development in Vanuatu for a number of years through the provision of Australian Volunteers and financial support with the Pacific Sports Partnerships program.

Through the recently launched Sports Strategy ‘Sports Diplomacy 2030’ we will continue to build linkages with our neighbours in the region and will continue to raise women’s profile in sports.
