Richie Benaud – An Australian Icon and Cricketing Legend
The Primary Club of Australia is a registered charity founded in 1974, whose fundamental aim is to give people with disabilities the opportunity to experience the joy and exhilaration that comes from any form of physical activity.
The name comes from the Primary Club, a charity that was formed in England over 50 years ago. A “primary” is a first ball dismissal in cricket—what is called a “golden duck” in Australia, as depicted in our logo.
Our Twelfth Man and Patron is Mark Taylor AO, former Australian Test Cricket Captain. His appointment was announced in our 2015 Annual Report following the passing of our former Twelfth Man, Richie Benaud OBE in April, 2015.
Our President is ABC Cricket Radio Commentator, Jim Maxwell AM.
