Cricket clubs across Mitchell Shire will host free come-and-try clinics for children aged 5 to 10 with the support of the Big Bash League’s Melbourne Renegades.

Starting tomorrow, the Renegades’ mascot Sledge will attend clinics at Yea, Alexandra, Broadford, Tallarook, Seymour, Avenel and Nagambie, with state-level male and female cricketers joining for different sessions.

The Broadford clinic will be at Harley Hammond Reserve from 10.30am to 12pm on Thursday, with a session at Tallarook Primary School from 1.30pm to 3pm on the same day.

On Friday, the Renegades clinic will visit Eastern Hill Cricket Club at Seymour’s Kings Park from 1.30pm to 3pm, with another session at Seymour Cricket Club’s home at Chittick Park from 10.30am to 12pm on Monday.

Part of Cricket Australia’s Cricket Blast promotion, the sessions will be free for all junior boys and girls interested in giving cricket a try.

Broadford Cricket Club president Michael Mirabella said there had been plenty of interest in Thursday’s session at Harley Hammond Reserve, although an impromptu public holiday for Queen Elizabeth II’s death could affect numbers.

“We’ve had a fair bit of interest, not only from our juniors but from some other clubs,” he said.

“We should hopefully have a good turnout. We’ve got maybe 40 or 50 juniors from our club who are keen and then a few from other clubs.

“Anyone is welcome to any of the sessions, and you don’t have to book.”
