College Cricket Welcomes Tim Ludeman

It is with great pleasure that we welcome highly regarded wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Ludeman as The Geelong College’s Director of Cricket Coaching for the 2018-19 season. 

As Director of Cricket Coaching, Tim will work closely with the College’s coaches to drive our cricket program forward and develop our cricketers from Year 7 through to Year 12. 

The Warrnambool-born cricketer comes with vast experience at many levels, having played in the Sheffield Shield for South Australia and Big Bash League for the Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades. Since making his first-class debut for South Australia in 2009, he’s played 47 first-class matches and 52 T20 matches to date. He also played for the Geelong Cricket Club in 2017-18.

In 2014, he smashed 50 runs in 18 balls – breaking the record for the fastest half-century in the Big Bash – on his way to making 92 not out off 44 balls. The record stood for two years, before Chris Gayle’s 50 off 12 balls in 2016.
While Tim has been playing professional cricket, he also completed a Bachelor of Business and Level 3 cricket coaching accreditation.

“I’m very excited by the opportunity to come on board as Director of Cricket Coaching,” Tim said.

“I did a few coaching sessions at The Geelong College last season and thoroughly enjoyed working in some of the best school facilities in Australia.

“Having played first-class and Big Bash cricket for a number of years and currently involved in a coaching capacity in the pathway system, I plan to bring these experiences of modern coaching techniques and training structures into our program.”
