Our girls teams train on a Friday evening at 6pm for one hour at the club.
It’s a friendly informal session and new joiners are always very welcome to come along and try it out.
Girls don’t need to have any experience in Cricket to join and it’s a great way to enjoy physical activity, whilst learning a team game and developing coordination skills.
This season’s training sessions will commence on Friday 1st April and usually run every week through to early September. Sessions are always weather dependent and we have an app for parents so that we can keep you updated on whether a session is going ahead or not.
The club environment is a very social one and we would encourage parents to come along, stay and support the girls, have a drink and meet other local parents. It’s a lovely end to the working week, especially when the sun is shining!
Girls don’t need any kit to attend training and we do have a supply of match shirts we lend out if the girls are selected to play in a match. Many of the girls do go on to buy their own shirt with their name on the back, once they start joining in with matches. These shirts can be purchased through this website.
League matches are usually played on a Wednesday evening but these are optional and parents can view the full schedule on our team app.
New joiners can attend for three free sessions to decide if cricket is a sport they enjoy and then we would ask that family membership be purchased. More details can be found on the membership page.
This year we plan to have two training groups. One will be for girls under 9 and the second for girls under 11.
Under 9’s - is aimed at players in school year 3&4 (age 7,8,9)
Under 11’s is aimed at players in school years 5&6 (age 9, 10,11, 12)
If your daughter is not in this age range, please get in touch with us to talk about alternative options. Our aim is to never turn away someone that is keen to play, so we will always strive to find a place for your daughter and girls can also train and play in the boys teams!
The club also runs All Stars cricket sessions. This is a great entry point, with a shorter season and no matches, ideally suited to boys and girls aged 5-8. It’s a great way to get them started.
