Women's cricket is one of the fastest-growing sports for ladies in England and Wales! The Squirrels treat women as equals and field ladies alongside our male players in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd XI.

Hello and welcome to the Ladies section of Wilmslow Cricket Club!

My name is Ash Smith, and I’m the Ladies Representative on the WCC Committee for the 2020 season. Whilst some may think of cricket as a long boring game, there’s loads of health benefits for playing cricket!

Although there is some standing around, to play cricket you need to be fit and strong, and have good hand-eye coordination and ball-handling skills. The basics of cricket is simple and involves sprinting between wickets and running to stop balls, as well as bowling and throwing. We’ll teach you everything you need to know in our weekly training sessions.

Being a part of Wilmslow Cricket Club isn’t just about playing cricket, we also have a strong social side, with monthly social events and trips to see professional games at Old Trafford as well. If you’re new to the area, or are looking to grow your friendship circle, Wilmslow’s local cricket team is for you!

DID YOU KNOW…

In 1958 the International Women’s Cricket Council (IWCC) was formed to co-ordinate women’s cricket around the world, taking over from the English Women’s Cricket Association, which had been doing the same job in a de facto role since its creation 32 years earlier. In 2005, the IWCC was merged with the International Cricket Council (ICC) to form one unified body to help manage and develop cricket.
