Thanks mainly to the enthusiasm of Charlie Hughes, who recently became a member of Bats Sports Club Moreton Bay, a Beep Cricket ‘Come and Try Day’ has been organized to be held in the Town of Kingaroy on Saturday 25 March 2023. Charlie who was recently diagnosed as being legally blind, has discovered a game of cricket that he can now play, even though he no longer has full sight. He is so excit
ed about this new game of Beep Cricket, that he wants to share the experience with people of his local community in the South Burnett Region of Queensland.
Charlie has won the support of community leaders in the South Burnett Region and expects a ro
using turnout at their first ‘Come and Try Day’. People with a wide range of disability, their support workers, family, friends and the general community are invited to participate on the day. A group of members from BATS Sports Club Moreton Bay will lend their support on the day.
Charlie would like to invite you to come and support the event:
When: 10am to 2pm, Saturday, 25 March 2023
Where: The Cricke Fields on River Road, Kingaroy
Lunch: A free Sausage Sizzle will be provided
‘Come on Down and see the worlds first and Australian-made Beeping Cricket Ball on show’. A very enthusiastic Charlie Hughes says to all he meets these days.
