Plot Your Pitch is an innovative social media project, designed to create an interactive museum experience with The International Cricket Hall of Fame located in Bowral, New South Wales, Australia.
Set on historic Bradman Oval, the very same cricket pitch where the late Sir Donald Bradman honed the skills that made him the greatest cricketer in the history of the noble game, The International Cricket Hall of Fame offers a cricket experience unlike any other in the world.
Sir Donald’s details were the first to be entered into Plot Your Pitch. You can see his entry now by clicking here.
The Plot Your Pitch website is the virtual element of this project. Both past and present cricketers are invited to plot the location of their first game of structured cricket into the site and share it with their friends and family, encouraging them to do the same.
The ‘World of Cricket’ gallery located within The International Cricket Hall of Fame is the physical element of the project. On a giant projected globe of the world that can be navigated by the visitor, all of the pitches and their accompanying images and stories can be accessed. This creates a unique opportunity to view and share international cricketing experiences and contemplate the vast geographic reach of the game.
Plot Your Pitch has been developed by the interaction design company Lightwell with support from Google Australia.
