About Girls Cricket

We are looking forward to welcoming previous and new participants back to Girls Cricket, with competitions for girls and women aged 10 to adult. In season 21/22 we had Stage 1 and Stage 2 teams for the first time in the club's history.

For women interesting in playing cricket, please contact our Senior VPs.

For season 2021/22 our Stage 1 and 2 teams played in the North Shore Junior Cricket Association (NSJCA), with teams from Castle Hill to Mosman.

The girls have had a great time practising the skills they have picked up in Blasters, and making new friends.

Recap of Season 2020/21

Season 2020/21 was the first time in 15 years KPCC were able to put together a girls-only team. They played in the Sixer Girls Cricket League against teams from the local area.

The girls were from our inaugural Girls Master Blasters the season before, experienced junior cricketers in our mixed Juniors or playing cricket for the very first time.

All the girls had a lot of fun and have inspired plenty more girls in the KPCC community to give girls cricket a go!
