Local girls will again get the chance to pick up the bat and ball as the Renegades Girls Cricket program returns to Maryborough this Thursday.
After success in its innaugural season last year, the Maryborough District Cricket Association (MDCA) again received funding from Cricket Victoria to give local girls the chance to play one of Australia’s most treasured sports.
The program is aimed at girls of all abilities aged 8-14, with two come and try days this year, followed by four games and skills sessions in 2019.
Driving force behind the local program, Paul Rumpff, said the goal is to eventually put together a competitive team and most importantly to get girls to stay active.
“We’re tied to the Central Highlands League in Ballarat and their girls have 20/20 competitions and the aim is to get a team to play over there one day,” he said.
The program kicks off this Thursday at Princes Park from 5 pm with a following session on Sunday, December 9 starting at 10.30 am at the Carisbrook Recreation Reserve.
The remainder of the program will commence in 2019 on Feburary 6, 13, 20 and 27.
