Canterbury Leisure & Aquatic Centre swimming instructor and lifeguard, Katie Mack, will be switching sports this summer, from swimming, to cricket after being selected to play in the Women’s Big Bash League, for Melbourne Stars.

The 23-year-old will travel to Melbourne to begin her two-month long season. This will be the second time she’s qualified for the team.

The Panania athlete said she was over the moon at the chance to represent women in cricket.

“I like how cricket is changing and growing and becoming more of a woman’s sport,” Ms Mack said.

“I’m looking forward to playing alongside other great cricketers and just being in that type of atmosphere. It’s exciting.”

Ms Mack will be opening the batting, which is far from what she thought she would ever be when she began playing at 12-years-old.

“When I first took up cricket I used to bowl leg spin, but the more I trained, the more I found I was better at batting,” she said.

“My whole family has been a huge support, but my dad in particular has always really pushed me to do my best. He’s always offering to come and train with me.”

Despite taking two months off to achieve her sporting dream, Ms Mack, said she would be back to the pools as soon as she could.

“I’d love to come back because this job has been really good to me for the past five years,” Ms Mack said.

“I like the flexibility, how the team is encouraging and easy to get along with, and the important services we offer to the community,” Ms Mack said.
