Cricket ACT has today announced the 2015/16 Rockets Cup, from which the 2016 Rockets will be selected.

The ACT indoor program will be looking to build on the success of the 2015 Rockets, who won the national title in July.

Commenting on the competition, Indoor Manager Cameron Walter said “The Rockets Cup is designed to bring together the most talented indoor cricketers in the region for a highly competitive and skilled competition.

“With Australian representatives Vinesh Bennett and Luke Ryan, alongside their national champion teammates, together with elite players from both the juniors and masters level, this edition of the Rockets Cup is shaping up to be the strongest yet.”

The Rockets Cup will take place over three Friday nights in December at Weston Indoor Sports.

All players interested in representing the Rockets, the 21/u side, or an ACT Masters side must participate and should contact Cameron Walter for more information on 0416 150 401 or via email.
