Australian Cricket Association (ACA) and Tasmanian Roar player Corinne Hall will visit the Northern Rivers next week to support cricket in the region and promote the game as a Sport For All as part of the ACA Country Blitz.

Originally from the picturesque Hunter region in NSW and a former NSW Under 19s player, Corinne has grafted a solid career in Tasmania since making the move down south.

With 80 games under her belt and more than 1000 runs, the top-order batsman has been a consistent run-getter for the Roar, especially in the Women’s National Cricket League.

Her 2014-15 season was highlighted by 29 against NSW and 72 against ACT.

Corinne played her junior cricket for a club called Dora Creek Workers club Near Newcastle in NSW.

As part of the visit, Cricket NSW staff and Miss Hall will take the time to visit local schools, guest appear at MILO in2CRICKET and MILO T20 Blast Centres as well as host a Volunteers Function to recognise the regions wonderful cricket community.

This visit is most timely after Cricket Australia announced last week that a proposed 2015 Women’s Big Bash League will feature franchises aligned with the current men’s competition – with the new franchises adopting the same colours and team name.

A Cricket NSW initiative, the aim of the ACA Country Blitz is to help support cricket in regional areas at the grass roots level, and to promote the game as a Sport For All, particularly amongst girls of all ages.
