The Jersey Cricket Board will again be aiming to expand Women's Cricket in the Island in 2010.
Novice Coaching sessions will begin at Grainville this month on 19th, 26th May and 9th and 6th June - all from 6pm until 8pm. These sessions are open to all women who are interested in learning a new sport, improving their fitness and having fun. The sessions are free of charge and are conducted by Jersey Cricket Board staff - Gemma Dunning (Lead Coach), Peter Gough and John Borg.
Following the success of the Schoolgirls Cricket Championships at Les Quennevais last year, the Appleby Schoolgirls Indoor Cricket Championships were held between teams from Jersey College for Girls, Beaulieu, Les Quennevais and Le Rocquier Secondary Schools.
Jersey College for Girls are the reigning Outdoor Champions but Beaulieu won the Indoor Championships which were held at Fort Regent. At present in Jersey there are 2 women's cricket clubs and any girls who enjoy their cricket are encouraged to get in touch with Katie Ridley at the Jersey Nomads Cricket Club or Vicky Toole orMarcia Lee at the Jersey Lillies Cricket Club for more opportunities to play. These two clubs play regular hardball matches against each other.
