Cricket season just around the corner for Whitsunday players

Parents are enjoying some downtime while junior cricket is on a Christmas break.

However, with the Big Bash League kicking off, households are likely far from being cricket-free.

Cricket is slowly starting back up across the region with the summer 100 ball competition in Mackay starting this week.

The competition will be played at Harrup Park on Friday and Saturday nights and is a great opportunity for the older kids to experience playing under lights.

Some Proserpine players will head down each week to play in various teams.

Next weekend, Mackay will host the NQ Alliance U18 Championships with local lads Michael Pettiford and Jack Dwyer competing as part of the Mackay/Whitsunday Team.
