Mike Pawley is an Australian former professional cricketer, philanthropist and business owner. He played professional grade cricket for Manly from a young age, as well as 11 first-class cricket matches for New South Wales between 1969/70 and 1973/74.
Mike holds life memberships with the NSW Cricket Association, Manly Warringah Cricket Association and Manly Warringah Junior Cricket Association and has had a significant involvement in coaching cricket on the Northern Beaches for almost 60 years!
His contribution to cricket and sport in general was recognised in 2008 with the naming of the sporting fields in Stirgess Ave, Curl Curl to "The Mike Pawley Oval". And on Australia Day, 2012, Mike was acknowledged for his “service to the sport of cricket in the Manly Warringah area” with a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM), one of the highest honours bestowed by the Australian government.
Giving back to the community for more than 40 years
For over 42 years, Mike Pawley Sports has proudly supported many sporting clubs, organisations, schools and charities across the Northern Beaches and further afield to country NSW and more recently to sporting clubs and schools in Sierra Leone.
In 2012, Mike Pawley Sports also became the principal financial supporter of the Happy Days Cambodian Village School Inc charity, an Australian Non-Profit Organisation supporting a rural village community in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This charity aims to create awareness of such poverty by raising funds for thousands of impoverished school children striving for an education in very difficult circumstances.
