Twelve teams will compete in the mixed netball tournament, while raising money for their chosen charities.
This year, the participating companies and their chosen charities are: ABC Music (supporting Green Music Australia), ARIA (Support Act), Future Classic (Foodbank), iHeartRadio (Support Act), Ingrooves (MMAD), Net Top Models (Cancer Council), Offbeat Collective and Elefant Tracks (Seed Mob), SCA (Make A Wish), Sony Music (National Justice Project), Spotify (Gurrumul Foundation), Sweat It Out (Butterfly Foundation) and TMRW Music (Yothu Yindi Foundation).
Fundraising for all the 2022 teams and charities is now open via My Cause.
At time of writing, Sweat It Out is leading the fundraising tally.
Prizes will be awarded to the biggest team fundraiser and biggest individual fundraiser. Any companies wishing to donate prizes can get in touch with the organisers via email here.
In the event’s first two years in 2018 and 2019, Ricochet Ball raised over $50,000 for charities including the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Gunawirra, Musicians Making A Difference (MMAD) and the Gurrumul Yunupingu Foundation, with teams from Spotify, Warner Music, SCA, Foxtel, APRA and Select Music.
The event has been on a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19.
KLP, co-founder of the event, DJ and songwriter, said she is pumped for the Ricochet Ball to make its return this year.
“We got so much amazing feedback from the first two years; teams have been pumped to get back on the court. After raising over $50,000 for charity in our first two years, we hope to raise even more money this year,” she said.
Fellow co-founder and music publicist, Anna Fitzgerald, added: “Ricochet Ball is a great day for the music industry to come together in a fun, sporty environment that doesn’t involve late nights or drinking. We will have prizes for the biggest fundraisers and of course I’ll be gunning for TMRW Music to regain our title as Ricochet Ball champions.”
