Blast Your Way Up
Junior and Master Blasters
You can start playing cricket immediately. We help adults and children to get started, to learn to bat, bowl, and field, and to start playing games.
For kids up to 8 years we run a fantastic Friday night of training and games at our club house, called Blasters. The whole community of Kenmore cricket comes a long and helps out. We host a BBQ and drinks in our club house, whilst the kids are out there learning the basics of cricket and having a great time.
Wake up early on Saturday mornings and watch your kids race to get into their cricket whites! They'll have their Kenmore Cricket polo top and cap on before breakfast.
Games are on Saturday mornings starting 8am, and try to finish after 10am. Most games are played in the greater Kenmore suburbs, including Brookfield, Fig Tree Pocket, Indooroopilly, and Chapel Hill on the astroturf wickets of local schools.
Everyone gets to bat, bowl, and field in all the positions. If you get out, you stay in. The ball is rubber, and batting pads are optional. Actually, they run faster without them.
As an indication, players in Stage 1 might be between 7 and 11 years old.
Time for the protective gear. We're now using the hard leather ball.
Everyone still gets to bat and bowl. That is, until you get out. Ouch. In Stage 1 you got to keep batting, but in Stage 2 if you're out you're out.
Games are now 3 to 4 hours long. As a bonus for you statisticians, game results and personal achievements are now recorded on MyCricket in real time.
As an indication, players in Stage 2 might be between 10 and 13 years old.
Turf pitches baking in the sun. The ovals get bigger. Players start to specialise. Batsmen try to stay in all day. Fast and slow bowlers try to get them out.
As the players get older the games begin to are competed across two weekends for an epic tussle of endurance.
As an indication, players in Stage 3 might range from 12 to 17 years old. There's no hurry to reach Stage 3. You've got a lifetime to play cricket with Kenmore Cricket Club.
