Real Pyjama Cricket

Andrew Powell’s cricket stand-off against the Maleny Maulers is now into its fifth year.

This is definitely not your average cricket game - for one thing, the players take pride in wearing their best pyjamas for a fashion-on-the-field look - all good fun and all for a good cause!

Proceeds from donations made before and on the day go to Lung Foundation Australia.    Maleny’s late Dr Peter Oliver dedicated himself to furthering research into the killer disease after being diagnosed himself - because like so many sufferers, he was a non smoker.     This was the message that Peter found was not getting out there - Maleny’s Charity Cricket Match is about trying to change that.

Simon Denver’s Maleny Maulers, current holders of the Golden Thong Trophy have got to be seen to be believed, and plenty of pollies have signed up to play ion Andrew Powell’s Celebrity Eleven to wrest it from their grasp!

Some good sledging opportunities for spectators and players alike! There’s a barbeque and bar run by hosts Maleny District Sport and Rec Club - just bring a chair and the family and take some time out to enjoy a great afternoon of social cricket whilst knowing you are helping the Lung Foundation Australia, who will be there on the day.
