Women’s cricket

Cricket Newfoundland and Labrador plans to start a women’s programme in 2019, and is seeking interest in taking part. The objective is to provide the opportunity for any women to try cricket, learn the game and develop their skills, with the objective being ultimately outdoor and indoor female leagues. Anyone who is interested in coming out and playing should contact us at cricketnewfoundland@gmail.com. We are looking at those aged 14 and up, with no experience required. We can provide facilities, equipment and coaching. The current plan is to have at least one regular training session on weekday evenings, and if interest allows, leading to playing matches. For those without any background in the game, we will provide a structured introduction to cricket, starting with learning the basic skills with a softer ball, leading to gradual introduction to the harder ball. At this point we will be offering the sessions at no charge.
