Moruya Author, Karen Motyka gives voice to women's cricket

FairBreak Global seeks to improve the financial gap between men's and women's cricket, along with differences in quality of play and available opportunities for women. Their main activity is the organisation and management of a women's cricket competition, the FairBreak Invitational T20 tournament which saw former Cobargo junior, Jade Allen, asked to play in Dubai's prestigious FairBreak Invitational Tournament in Dubai in May last year. Having made her mark Jade is now looking forward to the upcoming Under-19 World Cup in South Africa. Jade joins the rapidly growing world of International Women's cricket players. Less than a decade ago, female cricketers earned very little despite the expectations associated with playing at an elite level. Shaun Martyn, founder of FairBreak, recognised the inequality and decided to do something about it. What started with a purity of intention, ran into roadblocks at the highest levels of cricket's establishment.

In May 2022, FairBreak hosted the world's first global T20 cricket tournament in Dubai. Featuring ninety of the world's top female cricketers, no other sports event outside of an Olympic Games has brought athletes from thirty-five nations together in one venue to showcase their skills and sporting prowess.

FairBreak is about a social impact movement striving for equality.

FairBreak by Karen Motyka, Shaun Martyn - Published December 23, 2022 Moruya author, Karen Motyka, has given voice to the perspectives of Martyn and the people who have driven the movement forward; the FairBreak management team, the global superstars of women's cricket, and high-profile advocates. Each one of them is a #fairbreaker.

This book is a celebration of their effort.

Book a ticket for the Book Launch at Mogendoura Farm Stay Moruya on Fri 27th January at 5.30pm. For $25, you'll get delicious refreshments in a stylish barn and an enthralling Q and A with Karen Motyka and FairBreak Global founder, Shaun Martyn. Discover how FairBreak has disrupted women's cricket, and how a working mum who knew very little about cricket interviewed star players and serious cricket professionals from around the world and turned what she learned into a book in just over 5 months. There will also be an official book launch at the Bradman Room Manuka Oval on 4th Feb. for all our our Canberra readers prior to a T20 match afterwards of a FairBreak XI v ACT Meteors. The 12 Fairbreak crickerers are coming from 10 nations. Many of them captains of their national squads.
