Openings for more cricketers in Warwick association

IF YOU are new to town or just inspired by a summer of cricket on the little black box, there is still an opportunity to join Warwick cricket for the second half of the season.

Warwick Cricket Association senior fixtures recommence with three games on Saturday and one on Sunday and junior fixtures will return after the school holidays.

All games this season in the Condamine Cup competition are 40 overs a side.

The ages of cricketers in the Warwick senior competition range from 13 to around 50.

Association president Michael Bourke said at least half the teams in the competition would welcome new players for the second half of the season.

"We will encourage new players to join the clubs which really need more players,” Bourke said.

Each weekend, there are two to three senior games on turf and one to two games on synthetic.

Games are played in Warwick, Allora and Inglewood.

In the event of rain, games can be transferred from turf to synthetic wickets.

Junior fixtures are on Saturday mornings and more players welcome. See more on the juniors in the second half of January in the Daily News.

WHAT: Warwick Cricket Association

WHERE: Warwick, Allora and Inglewood
