Ladies

Welcome to the Cam CC Ladies Section.

Formed in 1989, has a strong committee and through the development of girls in our Youth Section, as well as the introduction of adults to a new sport, has proved to be sustainable when other women’s cricket sections have struggled. It has been fully supportive of the development of Women’s League Cricket and representative women’s cricket in Gloucestershire.

We are a dynamic and sociable cricket team, but we aim to be competitive at all levels. We welcome complete beginners, but also aim to excel in league games and develop all our members.

There are lots of opportunities to also become involved in Cam Cricket Club, with numerous members having become qualified coaches, volunteering with coaching the youngsters, attending committee meetings, contributing to fundraising and enjoying the friendly atmosphere of the club.

The Cam CC Ladies team will be playing in the Gloucestershire CB Womens league during the 2018 season.

Ladies training is on Friday evenings – 7pm- 8:30pm
