South West cricketers will have the chance to meet Perth Scorchers player Nathan Coulter-Nile during a visit to the Graham Bricknell Music Shell and Leschenault Cricket Club on Sunday, October 9.
Coulter-Nile will be heading to town in the new Scorchers bus with team mascot Blaze and the third Big Bash League trophy.
The regional roadshow coincides with PlayCricket week, a national registration drive to encourage more locals to become involved in one of the country’s most participated sports.
Cricket has undergone a transformation in recent years, with a variety of modified versions of the game now providing a format for everyone interested in taking part.
Cricket attracts more than 1.3 million participants across the country with almost 50,000 players across regional WA.
It’s not just boys keen to pick up a bat or ball with 18,996 regional school aged boys enrolled alongside 15,812 girls.
Coulter-Nile’s visit will start with a registration day and free holiday clinic at the Shell from 10am to 12.30pm before running a similar course and a barbecue at Leschenault Cricket Club from 1.30pm to 4pm.
