About the PK Cup
The first PK Cup was played in November 2006 on the Memorial Oval at Aquinas College to remember our good friend Philip Kennedy. Cricket was one of Phil’s great passions – witnessed through his knowledge of the game and his wonderful ability to play it.
As friends and team mates, we will forever remember Phil – not only for his great skills as a sportsman, but for his boundless intellect, razor sharp wit and famous sense of humour.
Philip was born in Canberra – the youngest of a family of five children. His first year of schooling was in London where his Naval Officer father was posted. The rest of Philip’s primary school years were in Canberra at St Bede’s school in Red Hill and at St Edmund’s College in Manuka.
When his father retired from the Navy in 1987 the family moved to Perth where Philip attended Aquinas College for his high school years. He was a good student and a keen sportsman and his great love was cricket. From Year 10 onwards he played in the First Eleven Cricket Team and also played with the Firsts in the Aquinas Australian Rules Football Team who won the Alcock Cup 1992.
At the age of 18, after leaving school, Philip suffered a nervous breakdown and remained in hospital for three months. The following year he enrolled at UWA where he completed his Bachelor of Arts Degree. Upon graduation he travelled to Europe with his girlfriend Benita and later lived in Japan for three months where he became proficient in speaking Japanese.
