Our Vision, Mission & Impact

Our Vision

An Australia where everyone, no matter what their disability, can enjoy the exhilaration and comaraderie of sport and recreation for a more fulfilling and rewarding life.

Our Mission

To level the playing field by funding the local charities and groups who create sporting facilities and opportunities for people with disabilities.

Our Impact

From individuals to family and carers, we have touched over 10,000 lives and created millions of smiles.




Our Structure

The Primary Club of Australia was founded in 1974 by a group of cricket lovers with the fundamental aim to give those with disabilities the opportunity to engage in physical activity.  It was established after a team of cricketers - led by Jon Erby AM and Peter Howarth OAM - found out about a similar charity in the UK where cricketers used their love of cricket for greater benefit. 

Due to the value of our work and our track record for achievement, we’ve attracted high profile sponsors and ambassadors, as well as some 1500 members around Australia who continue to make a valuable contribution to the society we live and play in.​

  • Members pay $50 per year and join our Golden Duck fundraiser by donating $10 every time an Aussie player has a first ball duck or ‘primary’ during a calendar year.​

  • Golden Duck donors donate ​over $1,000 a year and receive special event seating.​
