Sydney University Cricket Club is set to host its inaugural T20 Community Day on Sunday 11th October 2015 from 10:00am.
The event, being partnered by the Sydney Thunder and Kingsgrove Sports, will coincide with the Club's home round of the Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup scheduled for that day.
The T20 Cup will see Sydney Uni clash with fierce rivals Parramatta (10:00am) and Fairfield-Liverpool (2:30pm), both powerhouses in the Thunder conference of the tournament. With a victory over fellow heavyweight, Bankstown, in the opening round, these matches will be crucial to setting up a home semi-final berth and the opportunity to contest the finals series at the SCG in early November.
Sydney Uni Cricket's Operations Manager, Dale Bryant, said "this round of T20 cricket will be a true test, up against two of the better teams in the competition, one loss could see you knocked out of the race."
Led by the classy CNSW-contracted bat, Nick Larkin, the Sydney Uni T20 side has lost only one match in the last 12 months, being the 2014/15 grand final, and have been one of the most feared sides in the competition.
Larkin leads a squad full of talented and enthusiastic youngsters including powerful all-rounder, Tim Ley, lanky quicks, Nigel Cowell and Dugald Holloway, Australian U/19 representative, Jonte Pattison, and wily all-rounder, Liam Robertson.
Aside from some of the best T20 cricket action to be seen on local grounds, the Sydney Thunder will join us to run fun activities for the kids throughout the day. The Thunder Bus will be on-site with interactive activities such as cricket skills sessions and tv screens with various action taking place. There will be plenty of giveaways for kids participating.
There will also be a come'n'try session for Sydney Uni's brand new Milo in2CRICKET program which is set to commence in late October. Kids, both boys and girls, aged 5 - 8, are invited to try out Australia's favourite summer sport in a friendly and relaxed environment.
"As one of the oldest cricket club's in Australia, we are dedicated to giving back to the community in any way we can, this is a wonderful opportunity to bring the community into the campus and show them what Sydney Uni Cricket is all about" Bryant said.
The day is free for all to attend, and anyone interested should visit http://bit.ly/1QM3jDw to register (coaching and catering purposes only).
