Quintessential Cape Town: Sporting Chance helping create future cricket stars

13 May 2016 2:39 PM

NPO scouts talent and flair through beach cricket and help kids get bursaries at top schools.

Sporting Chance is an NPO that coaches and develops cricket.

Sporting Chance helps develop children from all communities and fosters a love of sport and cricket in particular.

CEO Brad Bing introduced calypso cricket some years ago, especially aimed at kids from poorer areas. It's a fun adaptation of conventional cricket and is played on the beach.

Sporting Chance is always on the look out to identify potential future cricket talent and one such young man is Bonga Makata.

We've got him on a bursary at a top cricket school in Cape Town.

Brad Bing, CEO of Sporting Chance

But Bing says, Makata is one of a number of rising stars. One of their young men is now in the Boland Cricket Under 19 team. And there are many more beginning to make their mark.

We've got a little pipeline coming through, which is exciting for us and the exciting thing is they are all on bursaries at respected schools in the Western Cape, and hopefully one of the 6 or 7 will come through and play provincial and for South Africa.

Brad Bing, CEO of Sporting Chance

You need three key components to be successful on the sports field, insists Bing. You need access to facilities, equipment, and professional instructed coaching.

But the last key component is mentorship. And that is what Sporting Chance provides.

Through calypso cricket we take thousands of kids to the beach, and our coaches identify natural talent and flair.

Brad Bing, CEO of Sporting Chance

Many of these kids bursaries are paid for by private companies or private donors, many who have listened to your radio station.

Brad Bing, CEO of Sporting Chance

He says talent is in abundance, if children are given the opportunity. Find them on their website and on Facebook.
