New generation of T20 players
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.
