Gary Kirsten Foundation

The focus of the Gary Kirsten Foundation is on the creation of sporting ecosystems and healthy alternatives for township communities by providing the quality infrastructure that is safe and accessible to people in the townships.

 Gary Kirsten has a passion for the development of sporting talent in South Africa. South Africa has a rich sporting culture and has produced many great cricketers, however, there is a lack of Black African cricketers being represented in the South African domestic, first-class and international cricket structures.

 Cricket Clubs and schools located within township areas are central to the success of aspiring youngsters who wish to become professional cricketers.

Unfortunately, the general state of outdoor practice facilities in these areas is currently not able to provide for the needs of aspiring township cricketers or youngsters who are interested in the game of cricket.

The Gary Kirsten Foundation is proud to be actively working on various projects in the community. From net installations and coach development for the township cricket development initiative to planning South Africa’s 1st complete artificial cricket field, developing a groomsmen training programme and community sports hubs
