Revolver Cricket is poised to break new ground with a series of trial/demonstration games for “mature-age” players.
The Queensland-based Revolver development team is hopeful the trials can pave the way for the establishment of a range of social/formal competitions in the Moreton Bay region, north of Brisbane – and create an exciting template for future national and international take-up.
“Up until now we’ve largely focused our energies on getting the Revolver concept out there – principally as a modified game for schools and, across the board, as a refreshing new adjunct to traditional cricket training routines,” Revolver co-inventor Peter Thomson said.
“But, given that we’ve always seen Revolver as having the potential to be a dynamic, all-inclusive, all-ages alternative to other forms of the game, we feel it’s about time we put that ‘theory’ to the test.”
Thomson acknowledged the “brilliant” support of Moreton Bay Regional Council, in making a suitable venue available, and the efforts of Caboolture Business Centre general manager Geoff McKenzie and North Lakes Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Kevin Lovewell in pulling together teams for the inaugural trial.
The first trial/demonstration game is scheduled for Sunday, August 12, at the Devine Court Sportsground, Morayfield (off Buchanan Road) – from 9am.
Further games, targeting other sectors of the local community, are planned for Sunday, August 19 (also at Devine Court) and Sunday, August 26 (at Lindsay Road Sportsground, Burpengary).
