Our Girls and coaches
Our vibrant and energetic Girls section provides a variety of cricket in different formats for girls aged from 6 to 16. Our aims are for all girls to develop their skills in a safe, exciting and positive environment where everyone enjoys their cricket and reaches their full potential as part of a team. Many of our girls have represented their District (RPC) and County over the years. All our coaches are DBS checked while our lead coaches all hold ECB Level 2 qualifications.
What cricket do we offer?
Girls Summer Cricket 2020
Despite a late start due to Covid 19 we organised around 40 friendly matches for our U9s, U11s, U13s and U16s this summer as League matches were temporarily halted this season. These included games against other local clubs and also mixed Boys/Girls matches. With the focus very much on participation, inclusion and enjoyment for all, our girls enjoyed cricket right into September.
0ur older girls also regularly played as part of our Women's team in the Hampshire League where we compete in Division Two.
All our teams play with a fantastic team spirit and we always welcome new recruits to our friendly and welcoming section; just get in touch with Rachel McGowan whose details are at the bottom of the page.
Autumn and Winter
Summer may be over but the cricket isn't! Cricket continues into the Autumn with Indoor Friday night YCC-only friendly games for our hardball girls from U11 and older at the Eversley Indoor Cricket Centre. (NB We are currently awaiting Covid 19 updates .)
U11s, U13s and U16s will also be playing in the Dummer Hampshire Girls Indoor League on Saturday afternoons plus U13s and older will also be playing as part of our Women's Indoor League team at Dummer on Sundays.
So if you are keen to play all year round we have plenty of cricket for you!
Friendlies and tournaments
Each season we hold our annual Yateley Girls Softball Festival attended by teams of our own U9 and U11 girls. Our older girls umpire and help to score the Festival on the day meaning that all the girls are involved either as players or volunteers.
In 2020 this was sadly put on hold with Covid 19 but we plan to run this once again in 2021.
Older girls help with the younger teams as helpers and positive role models, supporting U9s training each week. We always appreciate all the support of our parents too to help us maintain our friendly, lively section. Everyone is a vital and valued part of the Yateley Girls team.
