Ladies and girls cricket has been growing at Wellington CC over recent years and we have a detailed action plan in place to continue to develop this over the next few years.
The Ladies play in the Shropshire Active Women’s Hardball League and enjoyed a terrific 2019 season as the team won the Shropshire Hardball League, having been runners up in the 2018 season.
During the winter, the ladies play in a Hardball Winter League which is held at Wrekin College and also the Shropshire Cricket Board (SCB) Elite/Aspiring Indoor League held at Sundorne Games Hall.
In 2020, the ladies will also be competing in a new playing offer from the SCB in the form of the Strategic Leisure Shropshire Women’s HUNDRED competition. These matches will take place at Prestfelde School, Shrewsbury during June. Our ladies will be part of the Iron Maidens regional team.
As well as a hardball side, the ladies also take part in softball cricket. Various festivals take place across the County on Sundays throughout the season which are a great way for ladies to become involved in the game. No experience or equipment is necessary and it’s a great introduction to the game. Softball Festivals are well known as “Prosecco Cricket” and are a fun way to meet like minded ladies whilst playing cricket in a simplified format. We are also looking at becoming involved in a softball league in the 2020 season.
The Club are committed to continue developing the ladies side and we are keen for new members to join our ranks.
The Club has invested in new cubicle-based changing facilities which are better suited to the needs of our female members.
The ladies teams are led by Hannah Young who has been influential in the increased awareness of ladies cricket at Wellington. Hannah can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07827 865345.
