Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Calling All Local Cricketers!

Proserpine Junior Cricket Club are holding their next Have A Go sign on day this month, perfect for aspiring junior cricketers to get involved in the game and have their hand at the sport.

The Club has undergone a series of upgrades of the clubhouse and grounds, preparing for the upcoming season, including a floor refurbishment, new interior paint, and new nets.

With the season spanning October through to March, cricket is the perfect outlet for a summer sport, with the Proserpine Pitbulls competing in their competitions throughout the season: the local Proserpine Competition, a Mackay Competition, and a Bowen Competition.

Last season, the Proserpine Pitbulls U12 and U13 teams won the Mackay Premiership and the U15s were minor premiers, with a further 19 players selected for the Mackay/Whitsunday Representative team.

The Colts U16 debuted last season, made up of the older Whitsunday and Bowen Junior players who compete in the Senior Competition.

And with Girls Cricket increasing in popularity, the Club are encouraging all girls to come give the sport a go or participate in one of their upcoming Girls Clinics.

The Proserpine Junior Cricket Club will also be holding the North Queensland Cricket Association U13 Male Carnival in December, meaning now is the best time to get signed up for the upcoming season and be a part of the carnival.
