The season has just ended for the Karuah Tea Gardens District Cricket Club having run the very successful MILO in2Cricket program over the past few months.
“There were 15 participants, 14 boys and one girl, ranging in age from 5 years to 10 years,” Secretary Colin McCarthy said.
“They were taught the basics of holding a bat, bowling, catching and most importantly playing sport to have fun with their mates.”
“They also participated in a series of games, called T20 Blast.”
T20 is a similar format to the T20 game seniors play with all players getting a bat and bowl, fielding in different positions each over.
The club will run the program again in 2018, the season starting around late October.
It will be open to children aged 5 to 12 years, boys and girls.
Registration instructions will be posted on Facebook.

“With the NSW Government’s bonus sports voucher this makes sport more accessible and affordable for everyone,” Colin said.
The club will be looking to run a number of programs including the introduction into cricket, MILO in2Cricket and MILO T20 Blast programs,, if the numbers permit.
