To introduce cricket to a wider audience by promoting cricket for women and girls across the area. We will provide a fun and welcoming environment in which women and girls can learn the game of cricket, build on this knowledge, and develop the skills needed to reach their full potential.
From a chat between friends during the summer of 2018, the concept of bringing ladies’ cricket back to Poynton was born. Inspired by the ECB’s “Soft Ball Cricket Festivals”, it was decided that this format would be an excellent starting point.
As the 2018 season drew to its close, around 30 women and girls had signed up and took their first steps into the cricketing world, nervously picking up a bat and learning that “soft balls” aren’t that soft. Training throughout the winter honed newly acquired skills and our ladies stepped out onto the field in summer 2019 ready for their first season under the banner of the new club.
2023 sees our women venture into their fourth season in a relaxed, competitive environment. The focus remains on making cricket fun through training sessions and matches. We have always felt that soft ball cricket fixtures are a great introduction to competitive cricket and continue to play in Cheshire’s women’s soft ball cricket league.
Our 2022 joint venture with Stockport Georgians CC has now ended, and 2023 see us enter our own hard ball cricket team into the Cheshire Women’s Cricket League structure. Our first season in Div 4 will focus on teamwork and the continued development of our players within the more traditional format of cricket.
We welcome all new players - aged 13 and above (school Year 8 and upwards) - who are interested in learning and playing cricket. All you need is a sense of adventure, the willingness to get stuck in and a great sense of humour. If you are interested in joining in, please get in touch via email.
