Bulls Masters Annual Report 2022

December 7 2022

Chairman’s report snapshot

The challenge is on, and we relish creating playing opportunities for country cricketers. Very soon we want them competing much better against city teams when those moments happen. 

On top of playing opportunities, we know elite coaching is an area, crucial in cricket. So with the assistance of Chemist Warehouse we’ll continue a series of 3 days clinics with former test and first class players, willing to inspire younger players. The City of this huge state, shouldn’t be the only place where inspiration happens for talented cricketers. 

The Bulls Masters should be extremely proud of the Country Challenge for seniors and the Youth Cup for U16‘s later in the year. Assembling the best country talent matching them and their coaches up with former Qld players for the finest of pointers. 

Community and country cricket is where the Bulls Masters is adding much value in Queensland. Vast distances can be covered better, providing concepts to keep local players motivated for longer careers. With our assistance, cricket can still provide elite clinics to the best regional juniors as well as maintaining the volunteer’s focus of improving local competitions for the players who aren’t involved in rep teams. For Qld Cricket, Qld Country Cricket and the Bulls Masters to be able to access passionate former and sometimes current Queensland players is unique and impressive. 

Managing Director’s report snapshot

The Bulls Masters broke new ground as the Covid pandemic gave way after two frustrating years to return to our welcome normal travel arrangements. The Covid clouds lifted permanently midway through a year that included visits to all corners of the state. 

The new ground came with our first regional women’s camp in Mission Beach which continued the growth of a Bulls Masters organisation that sticks to the same charter: to deliver opportunities to develop cricket across this great state of Queensland. We again did this through various ways: tournaments; fundraising events; supporting causes outside of cricket; and specialist coaching for both players and coaches and to engage the former Queensland players. Our aim every year is the same: to do this at a high level and to do this consistently. That charter is non-negotiable. 

We again proudly continued our partnership with Queensland Cricket supporting the Queensland Bulls, the Queensland Fire and the Brisbane Grade competition. It gives us great pride to support the teams that we so passionately played for in recent times. Our next generation of Bulls Masters will come from these teams that we support. We are grateful for the chance to continue to play a role in developing players who wear the maroon of Queensland with genuine pride.
