Cricket Coaching in Perth
The Meuleman name is synonymous in Perth with all things cricket. Meulemans founder, Ken Meuleman played Sheffield Shield cricket for Victoria and Western Australia in the 1950s, as well as a test match for Australia. He also captained WA for a number of seasons and later went on to coach the WA team.
His son Robert Meuleman and grandson Scott Meuleman have also played for Western Australia. Scott was an upper-order batsman for the Western Australian side between 2001 and 2007, while Robert played 14 first class matches for WA between 1968 and 1972.
Robert is also a renowned cricket coach in Perth. He was the batting coach of former Australian wicket-keeper/batsman Adam Gilchrist and is credited with giving Gilchrist the idea to bat with a squash ball in his batting gloves.
Robert has also coached Wayne Andrews, Mark Lavender, Justin Langer, and Damien Martyn.
