Bingham Cricket Club are developing their girls section and are encouraging more young girls to join in the sport in Nottinghamshire
Weekly girls cricket sessions have seen an excellent turnout so far at Bingham Cricket Club.
The sessions run every Saturday from 9-10am at the studio in the Toot Hill Leisure Centre in Bingham.
They are focused on building core softball cricket skills.
Over a dozen girls have attended so far and the club are keen to get more girls coming along.
Junior Cricket Manager, Helen Fox Andrews, said: "We have really focused on getting girls to try the sport.
"Our junior membership is growing significantly, about 95% of which are male, and we couldn't understand why as we have had female players represent our club all the way to first team level.
"Cricket is a very inclusive sport and we want to develop that environment at Bingham'.
Fox Andrews said the club have targeted school Years three to six, and added, "Despite the fact that we have a Womens section and some older girls already playing hardball cricket, we want to encourage this group to play together and hopefully develop as they progress through the club."
No equipment or experience is required to join the sessions, and first session is free of charge.
Girls training runs every Saturday morning, at Toot Hill Leisure Centre, Bingham from 9-10am. To find out more, contact the club via email – firstname.lastname@example.org, via phone on 07817 983285 or on Twitter @binghamcc
The plan is for the club to enter a winter softball league after the new year and to carry on developing the girls' love of the game.
