Howzat! Hoppers Indoor Sportz and the Western Region Junior Cricket Association have teamed up to launch an indoor cricket competition for youngsters.

The competition will run during term two and three of this year.

Hoppers Indoor Sportz owner John Almond said they would be hosting a free come and try day on April 8.

Mr Almond said the cricket competition would be open to both boys and girls, and that organisers were hoping to have eight teams in each grade for under-11, under-13s and under-15s.

He said that young people from across Wyndham, Altona and Melton were welcome to sign up for the cricket program.

“I’m looking forward to is just seeing the kids play all year round and having fun,” he said.

Mr Almond said he wanted to arrange for the indoor teams to play against other centres, in country championships and in representative cricket.

“I used to drive the kids to Geelong for indoor cricket and I basically said, ‘We have to get this in Hoppers Crossing, there is no reason why we can’t’,” he said.

The games will run for about 50 minutes each. Hoppers Indoor Sportz is located at 16/55 Graham Court, Hoppers Crossing.
