Off the back of a landmark season for cricket on the Gold Coast where the Brisbane Heat played at Metricon Stadium for the first time, junior and entry-level programs have been thriving.
The impact of the Big Bash League coming to the Gold Coast was immediate, with an increase of ten teams joining the city's Master Blaster program.
The latest episode of Queensland Cricket's Community Cricket series looks at the Cricket Blast Program and how clubs on the Gold Coast are utilising this exciting format to bring in junior players.
QC will continue to use this series to educate and inspire clubs and volunteers on how we can all continue to grow cricket.
