New gen­er­a­tion of T20 play­ers

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

THE next gen­er­a­tion of Perth Scorchers can now get a blast out of cricket at the in­au­gu­ral Perth Scorchers T20 Blast Cen­tre.

Tak­ing place in Kens­ing­ton, the T20 was de­signed to give ju­nior play­ers aged 7-11 the op­por­tu­nity to play mod­i­fied cricket matches in a fun, safe and ex­cit­ing at­mos­phere.

Cricket Aus­tralia’s ju­nior par­tic­i­pa­tion spe­cial­ist Tony Ash­ton said he be­lieved the pro­gram, which fo­cuses on par­tic­i­pa­tion, would be very pop­u­lar due to the strong in­ter­est for cricket and the Perth Scorchers in the area.

“T20 Blast is a fan­tas­tic way for new chil­dren to try the game and repli­cate their Big Bash League he­roes in a fun, fast car­ni­val at­mos­phere prior to mov­ing on to a tra­di­tional cricket com­pe­ti­tion,” he said.

The eight-ses­sion pro­gram will take place at Harold Ros­siter Park on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noons.
