Our girls’ section has grown rapidly over the past few years and in 2022 numbered around 80 girls, aged between 7 and 15. It is based at our newly developed ground and pavilion at Grafham, which is the dedicated home of Blackheath Women and Girls' Cricket.
The girls are coached by the same team of professional coaches as the boys. Each squad also has a professional squad manager who will run all their squad's coaching sessions and as many as possible of their squad's matches, supported as necessary by other professional coaches and volunteer parent coaches.
In 2023, we will be running the following girls’ league teams:
U15/U14 (hardball cricket)
U13/U12 (hardball and softball teams)
U11/U10 (softball Surrey SmashIt league)
U9/U8/U7 (softball mini-tournaments)
U15/U14 girls are also invited to play alongside slightly older girls as part of our women's team, within the I'Anson League structure.
