We have developed an exciting, uniquely Australian product that perfectly marries our national sport - Cricket - with our love of the backyard, beach and bush.
Welcome to the Cricket Cooler! The Cricket Cooler is a 33Ltr Cooler that has a set of stumps (wicket) which rotate upwards at the front, which means your food and drinks stay cool while you're hitting those winning runs.
The idea came about when we struggled to drag all of our stuff from the car to the park one day with family and friends. Coolers, picnic rugs, hampers, bats, balls and the rest. You know the drill! We knew we could help solve this, and in the process, make something really cool and useful at the same time. You only need to take a look at any beach in Australia or drive past the local park and you will see children, teenagers and adults playing our beloved sport, Cricket. Instead of stumps (wicket) they will use a bin, a body board, a chair or any other item that can double as a wicket.
And just as obviously, our beautiful summers mean there's always plenty of demand for cold drinks and refreshments. Until now, the good old cooler has had to do!
To kill two birds with one stone, we imagined and designed the Cricket Cooler, which perfectly reflects the Australian culture - good times with friends and family, sport, recreation and the outdoors lifestyle.

With another exciting Summer of cricket approaching which includes the 2015 Cricket World Cup we are coming to Kickstarter to help to turn our dream into a reality. We have spent a large amount of time and money getting the project to this stage, but we need your help to take it into production.
All of our Kickstarter pledges will go towards the production of the Cricket Cooler so that we can bring our project into your home ready for Summer!
In return for your support we have a variety of Cricket Cooler packages for you to enjoy with your friends and family.
Please note - pictures above are for illustration purposes only. We will provide images of the official Cricket Cooler Stubby Holder and Rug once they have our Cricket Cooler brand on them.
Thanks has to go to both of our extremely patient wives (Sonya and Kate) who have been with us on this journey from the start.
We would also like to give thanks to the 'Friends of the Cricket Cooler' who have helped us to get to this point.

Risks and challenges
We have been trying to develop this project for a long time now and through the process we have learnt the importance of partnering with experts in their field. After working through some early challenges we have now produced prototypes that we are proud of, and they are currently being tested to ensure functionality and durability.
Our production team has been carefully chosen and they are ready to produce full orders as soon as funding is received.
Delays and unforeseen circumstances can sometimes occur. Although highly unlikely, our supporters and backers will be the first to know should something arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
