Opportunities for women’s and girls cricket in the New Year.

1 month ago By John Gale

Wiltshire Cricket to run two competitions in March/April 2019

2019 is set to be an important year for Women and Girls Cricket, with lots of clubs now involved with Women’s soft ball cricket or ECB Women’s competitions (19 women’s clubs already involved for 2019 + additional girls clubs).

There follows details of a couple of the winter/pre-season offers, which it is hoped will be of interest to clubs in Wiltshire, and will hopefully encourage more ladies/girls to take part in cricket (even if it’s for the first time).

Vipers Indoor Cricket League (Under 13 Competition)

In order to provide a valuable competition for clubs and players, a suitable venue for the Girls Competition has been booked, which will allow Wiltshire Cricket Ltd to run another Vipers Indoor League.

The Vipers indoor league is designed to provide Under 13 girls with an opportunity to put their skills into practice before the outdoor cricket season, and therefore the competition will be a paired format league, which creates plenty of opportunity for the girls to practice. (It will also likely be an indoor ball – pads not necessary).

Teams will consist of 8 players. County players are permitted in this competition, but please ensure that club cricketers are given equal opportunity, as they are less likely to have practiced as much over the winter period.

It is hoped that there will be no entry fee to this league, however, there may be an admin fee (no more than £10 per team) to cover trophy costs etc. (Currently awaiting budget plans).

Details:

Dates: Sunday 31st March, Sunday 7th April, Sunday 14th April, Sunday 28th April
Times: 12pm – 4pm (Each Team’s exact time will vary)
Venue: St Mary’s Sport Centre, Calne

ENTRY DEADLINE: SUNDAY 13TH JANUARY
There will be a maximum number of eight teams.

(Please note, the structure of fixtures will depend on total team entries. Where possible, teams travelling for greater distances may play twice in one week, rather than once per week).

Women’s Indoor Cricket League

With ladies cricket becoming more popular every year in Wiltshire, a Women’s Indoor League will again be running prior to the season commencing. The soft ball league will provide opportunities for teams to practice their skills before the outdoor season and perhaps encourage some new ladies to take part.

Much like last year, there is likely to be a range of abilities, from beginners to experienced cricketers, and so Wiltshire Cricket Ltd. will do their best to ensure that fixtures are evenly matched to give both teams a worthwhile and enjoyable fixture.

As above, it is hoped that there will be no entry fee to this league, however, there may be an admin fee (no more than £10 per team) to cover trophy costs etc.

Details are as follows:

Dates: Sunday 31st March, Sunday 7th April, Sunday 14th April, Sunday 28th April
Times: 4pm – 7pm (Each Team’s exact time will vary)
Venue: St Mary’s Sport Centre, Calne
Teams of 8
ENTRY DEADLINE: SUNDAY 13TH JANUARY
There will be a maximum number of eight teams.
