CRICKET: Darling Downs and South West regional cricket officer Anna Paton is upbeat about the success of the first week of In2Cricket and T20 Blast programs in Warwick this season.

Paton is starting In2Cricket in Warwick for three weeks and the program will then be continued by volunteers from the Warwick Cricket Association.

"We had 35 children at the first afternoon of cricket, aged six to nine, on Wednesday and more are welcome,” Paton said.

"The In2Cricket program is skill-based with activities for the beginners who then graduate to the T20 Blast games.

"There was a good mix of boys and girls at the first day of the program.”

In2Cricket and T20 Blast cricket continues 4-5pm each Wednesday at Slade Park for the next seven weeks.

Players and parents are welcome to come to the ground any Wednesday. More information and registrations on www.playcricket.com.au.

This Saturday will be the third week of the season for the older age groups in Warwick junior cricket.

Under-11 players will line up at 7.45am at Glennie Heights State School with U13s at Warwick East State School and U16s at Slade Park. More players are welcome to all grounds. The U16s desperately need more players. Information 0419651422 after hours.
