Saskatchewan’s first women’s cricket team has been given a chance to get some national exposure — if the women can raise enough money. The Regina-based Titans Divas are Saskatchewan’s only women’s cricket team. The Divas started in 2017 with just a few women. That number grew quickly to include newcomers to the sport once word spread of their existence.
In 2018, the Divas split themselves into teams for mini-tournaments against each other.
The upcoming Canada Day Cup women’s cricket tournament from June 29 to July 1 in Calgary’s Riley Park will feature their first matches against other competition.
The event is being hosted by the Alberta Women’s Cricket League and will feature teams from Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta.
The Divas need to raise $5,000 by June 20 to finalize their spot in the tournament.
