Woodridge Preparatory 20/20 Cricket Festival

Woodridge Preparatory will be hosting its third 20/20 Cricket Festival for primary schools on Saturday and Sunday 26-27 January. 

The festival aims to involve children in the shorter form of the game  at the beginning of season and to enable coaches to make fair and honest selections.  A total of 5 matches per school are played over the two days with the emphasis on ensuring participation by all in the various teams as well as enjoyment of the games.

It is not a tournament and there is no winning team.  Competitive participation and a healthy respect for the game is encouraged.
