The Willows will grow again!

Weston-super-Mare Cricket Club is continuing to expand its female only cricket offering in 2024 and is pleased to confirm that Girls cricket is returning to the club permanently!

We will be running two taster sessions in March and then running regularly throughout the summer from Saturday 13th April, offering fun, safe and inclusive sessions for 8-12 year olds, focusing on the fundamentals of cricket as well as teamwork and building confidence. No experience is needed, and all kit will be provided.

Dates & Venue
Saturdays 13th April onwards, 10:00 – 11:00 at Weston-super-Mare Cricket Club
Taster sessions on Saturdays 9th & 23rd March

Club Secretary Nicky Clarke, who oversees women & girls development at the club said
“The popularity of women and girls cricket has skyrocketed recently both nationally and locally, and we’ve grown from one women’s softball team to a softball and hardball team for 2024. The next step is for us to relaunch girls cricket at the club as almost a third of our All Stars last summer were girls, and we were able to run a girls only Dynamos programme too.

We’re so lucky to have Lauren Filer representing the club, she’s an amazing role model and is paving the way for the next group of girls starting their cricket journeys so I’m really excited that we are taking the next steps to creating a sustainable women & girls pathway at Weston.”
