Women and girls cricket in Darley Dale continues
to grow and promises to be even better in 2018.
It all began with several successful “have
a go” sessions in the summer of 2017
Our efforts were rewarded when we were
nominated to be one of five clubs in Derbyshire to receive funding for the development
of women and girls cricket as part of the Women’s World Cup 2017 legacy
Our very own Charlotte Horton ran a series
of indoor sessions in the Autumn which culminated with participation in a
softball festival in Allestree in December.
Everyone taking part agreed it was a
fantastic event and really couldn’t wait for the next opportunity to smash the
ball about or shatter the stumps.
And so onto 2018 and the continued growth
of women and girls cricket in Darley Dale.
There will be more sessions at Station Road
during the summer. On 24th June we will host the first ever Women’s Softball Festival at Darley Dale featuring teams from
around the county.
