Over $40k raised for charity as Team SCA takes out Ricochet Ball 2024


Team SCA is in celebration mode, after taking out the music industry’s charity netball event, Ricochet Ball.

Held last Friday at Perry Park in Alexandria, NSW, the 2024 tournament brought together 12 teams from the music industry for a solid day of netball and fundraising.

In the end, Team SCA defeated Team Live Nation x Secret Sounds in a hotly contested Grand Final.

For winning the competition, SCA will receive a $7,000 donation to its charity – Lou’s Place – in addition to the almost $2,000 the team members raised themselves.

Team TMRW Music-Ministry of Sound Events was the tournament’s biggest fundraiser, amassing over $5,370 for Friends With Dignity.

Overall, the event raised over $40,000 for charity, making it the biggest year of Ricochet Ball yet.

SCA’s team captain Kiri Martin said “There’s a reason SCA always come back to play in the Ricochet Ball netball tournament – we get to raise money for a charity of our choice and it’s always such a well organised event where people across the music industry can come together, have a laugh and can compete for bragging rights!”

“We were determined to get the win this year and don’t worry … everyone will hear about it! See you next year!”

Ricochet Ball was founded in 2018 by DJ, songwriter and producer KLP (Kristy Lee Peters) and music publicist Anna Fitzgerald (pictured above with KLP) as a way for the music industry to come together in a drug and alcohol-free environment, to play sport in a day of fun and music, while raising money for charity.

The $40,000 raised this year takes the grand total raised by Ricochet Ball in the four years it’s been held (2018, 2019, 2022 & 2024) to $115,000.

KLP and Fitzgerald said “We want to thank every single player who participated and more importantly, those who really got behind the fundraising this year.”

“To raise over $40,000 is a huge feat and we thank every single person who donated to some incredible charities.”

The 12 teams who competed on the day were APRA/AMCOS, ARIA, Aus Net Top Models, Future Classic, iHeartRadio, Live Nation x Secret Sounds, SCA, Sony Music, Spotify, Sweat It Out, TMRW Music-Ministry of Sound Events and Universal Music.

Familiar faces on the court included actor and comedian Matt Okine, Danny Clayton, KLP, Hugo from Flight Facilities and Nath Roye from the Jimmy & Nath Show, with ARIA CEO Annabelle Herd also in attendance with over 100 music industry figures.
