The Imparja Cup is Australia’s National Indigenous Cricket Carnival held annually in the heart of Australia, Alice Springs. Originally founded by custodians, Shane Franey and Ross Williams as a family match between Alice Springs and Tennant Creek, the Imparja Cup is now a national celebration of cricket and Indigenous culture held each year in February.
The event was held from Sunday 17th February to Saturday 23rd February 2013. Photos from the 2013 event can be found at www.facebook.com/ntcricket
