Noogal Toengorrt Tani Cricket Program
Noogal Toengorrt Tani is Cricket Victoria's (CV) Indigenous Cricket Program designed to provide participation and development opportunities for Indigenous Australians to participate in cricket.
Indigenous Australians claim strong roots to international cricket, as the first Australian cricket team to tour England in 1868 was all-Aboriginal.
CV offers school and community clinics, grants for cricket clubs, winter development squads and representative opportunities in the Imparja Cup - Australia's national Indigenous cricket tournament.
Noogal Toengorrt Tani - the name and logo.
Respected Wurundjeri elder, Aunty Joy Wandin-Murphy was invited by Cricket Victoria to name the Indigenous cricket program.
Aunty Joy based the name on Woirwurrung words for 'belong' - Noogal and 'success/win' - Toengorrt Tani.
It is pronounced Noo-gal Too-en-gort Tarn-e.
Indigenous artist Treahna Hamm designed the logo to represent Victorian Indigenous cricketers.
This is a logo that can be owned and worn by any indigenous cricketer in Victoria.
The design is linked to the members of the 1868 Australian team, composed of Aboriginal men from Western Victoria that toured England.
The design also includes the seam of a cricket ball along the Aboriginal flag.

Victorian Indigenous Cricket Advisory Committee (VICAC) has been established to advise CV management on matters relating to the creation, establishment and maintenance of Indigenous cricket programs in Victoria.
