The Sydney Sixers Community Blast comes to Maitland's Robins Oval on Tuesday with Sixers stars Daniel Hughes, Lauren Cheatle, Jack Edwards and NSW playerHarry Conway taking part in the cricket expo.
Cheatle was a valuable member of the club's powerful WBBL team that finished as the runner-up in WBBL|04 and said she hoped the Hunter could get behind the Sixers this summer.
"We love coming to the Community Blast and meeting new people, who hopefully become Sixers fans and will come to our games or watch us on television," Cheatle said.
"And if our visit can inspire some young girls and boys to take up cricket, it's all worth it."
The Community Blast, which is free of charge, runs from 4pm to 6pm at Robins Oval and features fun cricket related activities for children with the Sixers players on hand to share their knowledge and get involved in the fun.
"We have four star players on hand as well as the Sixers merchandise/membership tent will be in operation and clubs will be invited to join in to promote their club offerings for the upcoming season," Cricket NSW Hunter cricket manager Gary Fisher said.
"Cricket NSW will also have an information marquee available for parents, players to make inquiries regarding cricket related formats."
The Community Blast activities are free of charge. Parents are advised that children wanting to take part in a training clinic should be at Robins Oval by 4pm to register if they haven't done so already. The clinic runs from 4.30pm to 5.30pm
