About Manly for Manly

Manly for Manly - Manly Warringah Club for the Manly Warringah Community

Manly for Manly
is the internal community program of the Manly Warringah Waratahs launched in 2013/14 that will continue for the 2016/17 season and beyond. It is a program that aims to bring the club, players, administrators and supporters closer to the local community, and is going from strength to strength.

We here at the Waratahs believe that in order to develop our players as people, flourish as a club, and become an integrated part of the area that we represent, a simple but effective community program is a must.

While our club is primarily about laying cricket, we also see it as an opportunity to help develop boys into men, being able to take responsibility for their won actions and seeing that some peoples life is not as privilidged as ours.

We are one of only a few clubs who have the privilidge of representing the "Manly Warringah" brand, which is an extremely strong one as it covers the entire Northern Beaches area. However, with this also comes a resonsibility to live up to this name..... we need to be a club that represents our area with pride and dignity, and this involves being part of it.

It is also a very important part of our club because, lets face it, the community is our future. The majority of our future players and administrators will come from the Northern Beaches community, so showing these people what our club is all about and engaging them early on will only help to increase our chances of future success both on and off the field. The Manly for Manly program aims to do all of these things.

The program is split up into 3 seperate focus areas:
  1. Community Events:

    2. Beyound Blue - Click here to read more about this initiative

These priorities can be added to and updated as our club and community continues to evolve.

It's also a pleasure to confirm that Neuro Power Group will be sponsoring our Manly for Manly comunity program for 2016/17.

We are also extremely lucky that this program has the fantastic support of our great patrons - NSW Treasurer Mike Baird, Manly Mayor Jean Hay and Warringah Mayor Michael Regan. Click here to view their thoughts this great new initiative.


As this is a holistic approach, the Manly for Manly program will involve our players, administrators and coaching staff to some degree. It is important that all levels of the club, both on and off the field, work together to move the club in the right direction.

Any help or advice on how we could make this program better is always welcome. On this note, we are happy that this program will be run by Tim Cruickshank and Ted Lindsay for 2016/17. Ted has been involved with the Waratahs for over a decade now due to his 3 sons playing - Andrew, Michael and Peter. He is a Life Member and former President of our Junior Association, and is keen to be involved with the Waratahs once again.

It's also great to have a person of Tim's stature in the Cricket Community involved, and is our official Community Manager on our committee.
