The cricket season may be over, but that does not mean that cricket stops over the winter!
Looking for your fix of cricket over the winter period? Here is the breakdown of all women and girls' cricket and coaching over the coming months:
Winter Softball Festivals
Following the success of last season's indoor timetable and the demand for further playing opportunities, there will be a winter softball festival each month over the winter period, except for in December.
Similarly to the summer festivals, a designated club will be running each festival. Spaces are limited, so these will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis. The Board will try and ensure that places are allocated so that all clubs are given the opportunity to participate.
Register your interest by completing the Winter Softball Festivals form.
Cricket in the Dark
Glow in the dark is back this Halloween! Players are encouraged to come dressed in their best Halloween costumes, while all equipment and glowsticks will be provided. Teams of 6 are being welcomed for £30 per team.
27th October (2-5pm) | 28th October (6-8pm)
Ottery St Mary Leisure Centre | Plymouth College
Girls' Softball Festivals
Casual and friendly festivals to keep cricket skills and gameplay fresh over the winter, open to Under 13s and 11s teams. Christmas Cricket will return at the December festival, involving Christmas jumpers and tinsel galore!
Indoor Girls' Competition
The indoor competitions at Ivybridge are perfect for teams looking for some more competitive cricket over the winter.
The board is running a female-only Foundation I Coaching Course:
28th January & 4th February 2023
Devon Cricket Centre, University of Exeter Sports Park, EX4 4QN
If anyone is unable to make the female-only course, there are other Foundation I Courses taking place over the winter.
There will be an informal Umpiring course around the rules for the games that are played within the leagues and how best to manage games in order to facilitate the enjoyment of cricket:
There are also formal Umpiring courses running this winter.
Ann-Marie will also be running a Scoring course specifically for how to use Play-Cricket:
