Free local cricket clinics

The City of Canterbury Bankstown will be hosting two cricket skills clinics next month for young aspiring sportsmen and women.

Bankstown District Cricket Club first grade player and Cricket NSW Game Development Manager, Daniel Solway, said Canterbury-Bankstown provided the best opportunities for budding cricketers.

"Canterbury-Bankstown is a great place to play cricket with lots of opportunities for young cricketers," Solway said.

"They get to play on some top grounds with good facilities, while enjoying the opportunity to play cricket."

Solway said the clinics were a way to ‘try-before-you-buy’ activity.

"You’ll never know if you like the sport until you give it a go," Solway said.

"It is a great way to experience the new junior formats, implemented by Cricket Australia. These encourage kids to be even more involved in cricket, learning the skills of the game, while having fun, being active."

The two local cricket clinics are for children aged 5-13 years and will be held on:

  • Sunday 26 August - Bankstown Memorial Oval; and
  • Sunday 2 September – Blick Oval, Canterbury.

Mayor Khal Asfour said there were many benefits to signing up to the summer sport.

"Just because the footy and netball seasons are ending, doesn’t mean there’s no reason to take up another sport and learn new skills," Mayor Asfour said.

"Cricket provides many health benefits, including building stamina and endurance, balance, coordination, physical fitness and hand-eye coordination.

"Not to mention you can build team and social skills, and it’s a great way to meet new people."

The free one-hour clinics will target skill development and include a visit by the Sydney Thunder Bus. Videos from the Sydney Thunder players in the Big Bash League and Women’s Big Bash League will be played throughout the clinic as well.

To register, visit cb.city/activecb-sydneythunder or, for more information, call Council’s Recreation Officer on 9707 9236.
