With last year’s event moved to a virtual experience, Melbourne Stars General Manager Blair Crouch said the team is thrilled to pe able to visit Stars fans in person this year.
"I'm really looking forward to getting back into the regions to connect with the community after a couple of challenging seasons for everyone, at all levels of cricket,” he said.
"One of the biggest thrills for our players is meeting and inspiring the next generation of cricketers and that is something they have dearly missed over the last few years.
"Having grown up in regional Victoria myself, I have seen first-hand the influence that elite sporting clubs can have on a local community and it's something we take great pride in doing."
Yesterday, the tour stopped on Moe which will host WBBL cricket for the first time in 2022.
