Welcome to Taverners, Sydney

A passionate group of sports loving people dedicated to raising funds and making a difference by giving the young and disadvantaged a sporting chance.

Taverners Australia is a national network of branches covering all states and territories of Australia. We support the deaf, blind, intellectually impaired, indigenous and young girls to play sport and in particular cricket.

We “give a sporting chance” by providing financial support directly to these groups to allow them to actively participate in cricket – generally at a grass roots level.

In late 2017 we developed a strategy to significantly increase our reach and support. At the same time The Taverners were appointed Cricket Australia’s lead Community partner. We have formed a Foundation – The Taverners Foundation, which allows donors of $2 or more to claim a tax deduction for that donation.

The Taverners is made up of hundreds of volunteers across Australia with the only expenditure being the cost of running events and branches. No salaries are paid.



Brett Lee - Honorary President

Taverners Sydney appointed former Test cricketer Brett Lee as the new Honorary President in 2019.

After making his international debut in 1999, Lee claimed 310 Test wickets during his 76-match career and 380 wickets from 221 ODIs.

He was a two-time World Cup champion and three-time Ashes winner.

Lee represented the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League and the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.

Since retirement in 2015, Lee has acted professionally in Bollywood and been a part of the Fox Cricket commentary team.

Trent Copeland - Honorary Playing Captain

Trent Copeland has represented Australia and New South Wales throughout his stellar career, taking 394 first-class wickets since his debut in 2010.

The seam bowler was named Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year in 2010 before playing three Test matches against Sri Lanka in 2011, famously taking a wicket with his second delivery in international cricket.

Copeland is currently a presenter on Channel 7’s coverage of the home summer of cricket and the Tokyo Olympics. He has also worked in previously done radio commentary with ABC Grandstand.

Copeland has been a long-term supporter of the Taverners, including being a volunteer coach for a number of seasons at the Taverners Isolated Cricket Camp.

Brian Booth - Sydney Branch Honorary Patron

Brian Charles Booth is a former Australian cricketer who played in 29 Tests during the 1960s, and 93 first-class matches for New South Wales. He was also Australia’s 31st Test captain.

Booth scored 1173 Test runs at an average of 42.21, with five Test centuries and a high score of 169.

In 1982, Booth was awarded the MBE for “services to the community and sport” and he was inducted into the Cricket NSW Hall of Fame in 2014.

He remained involved in grassroots cricket following his retirement, primarily at St George CC where he has served as the club president and as a coach for many years.

The Taverners thank Brian for his ongoing support.
