Blind Bats Inc. introduced the game of Beep Cricket at a match between the BATs and the Moreton Bay Mayor’s XI held in September 2021.  A Beep Cricket competition will commence in July to September 2022.

The project to develop the game of Beep Cricket was funded by the Fedral Government with the member for Longman Hon Terry Young MP strongly supporting the idea.

In the game of Beep Cricket, the teams are made up of a mixture of participants with all levels of sight, including those with full sight. In addition to playing with a beeping ball, the game is also played with a boundary rope and some slight rule changes that level up the playing field when it comes to sight capacity.

Did you know, that a version of the game of Beep T-Ball has been played in North America for many years?

So, if you want to give it a try, let us know, and we will contact you as soon as it comes to your location.

Now Blind Bats Inc. will be introducing the game to Australia in 2022 but with a few changes:

  • Players do not have to wear blindfolds
  • 4 x 160cm tall bases are used.
  • The game is played on a reduced-size diamond-shaped field.
