THE Axe Creek All Abilities Cricket Club will take on the best teams from across the state at the VICSRAPID Cup on Sunday.
Coach Rob Fisher said the players would be representing Bendigo at the Ballarat tournament.
"Bendigo should be proud that we have 18 players representing our region in three separate grades," he said.
"This is the first time that Axe Creek Cricket Club has been involved in this carnival and the players are keen to get to Ballarat."
Axe Creek's All Abilities cricket program has turned its focus to indoor cricket during the winter months.
"Since the start of the indoor cricket program in Bendigo our numbers have steadily grown to about 30 registered players," he said.
