Senwes Spinners

Sustainability is one of the key factors in Corporate Social Responsibility and to Senwes, a critical criterion when considering participation in a project. When the Senwes Spinners Farm School Cricket Development started out in 2006 it was one of those projects that you wondered whether it would be sustainable due to the vast geographical area it covers, the lack of facilities at the schools and a number of other challenges facing farm schools in general.

Thanks to the commitment from our partners Senwes – The Senwes Spinners Farm School Cricket Development program turned out to be the flagship of farm schools cricket development in the country. Some total number of 1560 learners have benefitted from this project over the past 12 years.

Not only did they receive an opportunity to play cricket, but their life skills and sense of responsibility towards their studies also improved. Some of the learners were fortunate enough to be selected to play in various schools, district, and provincial teams. “North West Cricket is highly appreciative to have a partner such as Senwes, who have shown dedication, passion, and compassion towards sustainable community development in the rural areas; more so in the lives of children and teachers from the farming community of South Africa through the Senwes Spinners Farm Schools Cricket program, which has reached a milestone of 12 successful years.” – Vincent Prior, Chief Executive officer of North West Cricket.

North West Cricket is extremely proud to be part of the successful program.

A Rich History for

North West cricket | senwes spinners | north west Dragons

North West was called Western Transvaal in 1989-90 when it began playing List A cricket in the Nissan Shield, and in 1991-92 when it began playing in the second tier of the South African first-class cricket competition. It changed its name to North West in 1996, after the creation of North West province from parts of the former Transvaal Province and Cape Province. It has been part of the Lions since October 2004. Under the name Western Transvaal it won no matches at all in its five first-class seasons. In its first season as North West it had its first first-class victory when it beat Western Province B by 27 runs in January 1997.

In April 2017 the province’s administration, North West Cricket, re-branded all the province’s teams as the “North-West Dragons” The North West Cricket Stadium’s first naming rights sponsor was Sedgars in 2004, until Senwes took over the naming rights in 2008. Senwes Park is currently the home of the North West Dragons Provincial Team, the Highveld Lions and is also one of South Afirca’s newer international grounds. The stadium boasts a busy schedule and hosts a large variety, of events every year.
