Girls encouraged to play cricket

Cricket NSW is encouraging girls to play cricket as part of an introductory program called CricHit which will run across NSW from October to December.

The local CricHit program, aimed at girls aged 10-13, runs for six weeks and costs $35, which includes a host of extras like hats and sunscreen.

Sign-on is on Wednesday, October 25, from 5.30pm at Nielson Park in East Lismore, with the season starting on Wednesday, November 1.

CricHit is for girls only, and aims to develop their cricket skills with other girls in a fun and friendly environment.

In addition to CricHit, Queensland representative player Kate McGibbon is also running the Milo Cricket program for five to eight-year-olds at Nielsen Park in East Lismore on Fridays from 5.30pm. Sign-on for the season is on Friday, October 20 and October 27 at 5.30pm.
