Womens training dates for Spring 2020

12 Feb 2020

News of the next opportunities for cricket for Women & Girls at Leamington CC.

Winter nets

We will again be running 4 evenings sessions at Princethorpe school for small groups to practice hardball in nets along with coaching provided.  These will be on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm for an hour (3rd March, 10th, 17th and 24th).

Booking is now available and costs £32 for the 4 sessions.  If you would like to book a place, please complete the enclosed form and return to us, along with depositing the monies owed into the Leamington club bank account, details provided in the form.  We have a few bookings already, hence please return promptly before places are filled.  New players welcome.

Indoor Tournament

We have entered a Leamington Womens 6 a side team into a 4 team indoor tournament that the Warwickshire Cricket Board are organising for the first time this spring.  We will be joining with 3 other new local teams (so games are definitely aimed at new/learning players rather than ‘fight to the death’ competitive county level!).  There will be two quick games on each of the days, coaching and umpiring will be provided by the Cricket board and on each occasion for games starting at 1pm we should be finished by 3pm.  Games will take place at Alcester Grammar School, and will be on Sunday March 22nd, Sunday March 29th and Sunday April 5th - please let us know at leamgirlscricket@hotmail.com if you would be interested in joining our team.

Plans for the summer

Plans are relatively well advanced already – nets are likely to take place again at Leamington on Thursday evenings from the end of April onwards (precise date to follow), whilst with the growth in new players at both clubs over the winter we will also be joining up again with Berkswell CC to create a first XI playing in the top division of the new Womens West Midlands League, and a 2nd XI playing in the 2nd Division again to help develop those new to the game in a close, participation environment.

There are some exciting cricketing opportunities for women and girls ahead - please drop us a line if you would like to know more.
