Thunder stars surprise local club for training session

As the Principal Partner of Sydney Thunder, Mazda are committed to supporting local cricket clubs throughout the Thunder Nation.

This season, Mazda gave clubs the chance to win cash prizes worth $2,500 and the opportunity to have Thunder players visit their club for a training session through the Mazda High-Five competition.

The competition required clubs to register online and then encourage their members to attend a Thunder home game and cast a vote for them.

Votes were cast at Thunder home games by writing the club name on a Mazda High-Five magnet and sticking it to a Mazda CX-9.

Successful club West Ryde Rovers received a special visit from Thunder stars Kurtis Patterson, Rene Farrell and Naomi Stalenberg on Monday, who also presented the club with $1,000.

“Mazda is proud to support grassroots cricket across the Thunder Nation,” said Tony Pepper, Mazda NSW State Manager.

“We hope the Mazda High-Five competition will give local clubs more opportunity to engage and inspire young cricketers across Sydney.”
