Cricket Blitz

Cricket Blitz is our afterschool cricket competition aimed at the social to semi competitive cricketer. In Blitz the rules of traditional cricket have been changed to focus on equal participation. All 8 kids in a team will bowl and bat for the same amount of time.

It is free to enter and all the gear is provided! With no need to buy any gear or pay a registration fee the financial burden is reduced for parents.
