Our women’s team was launched in 2019 and quickly grew. Our new ground and pavilion at Grafham, which has been completely redeveloped and was formally opened in July 2021, is now the home of our Women & Girls’ Section, and we believe is the only facility in the county principally dedicated to women's cricket.
Since 2021 we have been entering teams in the new I’Anson women’s softball leaguem who play their matches on Sunday afternoons. However, our older girls have been playing hardball cricket for a while now and in 2023 it is hoped that the Blackheath women (which also includes U14-U18 girls) will be playing one or two hardball as well as softball games against other I’Anson League clubs.
Our winter training programme will be running at Cranleigh School from 11am to 12 noon on Sundays starting on 8 January 2022. For further details and to sign up, see "What's On" below.
In the summer, it is planned that training will again take place at Grafham on Thursday evenings from 6.30pm-8pm. Our 2022 overseas player/coach, Ian Souness, will be returning and will have particular responsibility for the women’s squad.

Subscriptions for the women's section in 2022 are £55 (which includes all match fees). We are keen to attract new members of all standards and would love to hear from you. Please contact Helen or Sue (see below) for more details.
