Fun, friendly, welcoming cricket for all girls!

It’s all about friendship

The best thing about cricket is the friendships made. Our club is renowned as welcoming all girls and women.

Getting to us is easy

Getting to our home at Ryder Oval is super easy. Get to us on safe bike paths; walk, catch a No.19 or 55 tram, or a train to Jewell Station, or drive a car. If you still have trouble let us know and we’ll help find a solution.

We’re flexible

We’ll help you find the way to get involved that suits you the best. Come once to have a go or stay for the whole season. You’re always welcome.

Safe and free to be yourself

We won’t take you beyond where you want to be. You’ll be safe as you learn. It’s fun!

We play in one of the most beautiful places in Melbourne

We play in Royal Park, one of the most beautiful natural environments in the whole of Melbourne, surrounded by cool gum trees, native birds and native plants and flowers.

We provide all your equipment

We have a unique program where we loan all equipment (and a bag to carry it all) for all female players. It’s free. Small fees are paid for competition matches, and many free activities for girls wanting to have a go.

How do I let you know I’m interested and find out more?

Just register your interest and we’ll be in touch.

Try Out the Vibes

Jump into short fun activities suitable for everyone. Just turn up and see what you and your child think and feel about the experience. Ask questions. Try the equipment. Soak up the vibe. Held on Saturdays for less than an hour from September.

Junior Blasters

A wonderful experience for girls of all skills and abilities. Running, jumping, catching, throwing, hitting, playing. Great veggie and halal BBQ after the 60 minute session. Parents, carers and grandparents can all get involved. Our female and male coaches will guide you.
5-8 yrs

Master Blasters

Similar to Junior Blasters but for girls and boys aged 7-10 and with more modified games plus 30 minutes extra playtime. Great veggie and halal BBQ. All equipment supplied.
7-10 yrs

Girls Only Or Mixed Teams

We have girls only teams, or girls can also play in mixed girl/boy teams. All gender identities welcome and we’ll find the right team for your child to play in. Girls train together once a week and play matches against other clubs. Our focus is on participation, encouragement and having fun. We cook up a veggie and halal BBQ every evening after training.
6-16 yrs

Senior Women

When girls feel ready to try playing with senior women’s teams we support and encourage them. Our senior women’s teams are inclusive and friendly. They’re full of players of all ages and backgrounds, skills and abilities. We provide specialist coaching to help girls be their best. We have an excellent relationship with Carlton Women’s Premier Cricket Club for those girls with skills and ambition to play for Victoria or Australia.
13-99 yrs

See what our girls have to say!

Twinkle, 11 yrs

It’s so just fun to know people are helping me be my best. I like the way it’s ok if you don’t do the greatest. My team always include and encourage me – no matter what.

I remember when I was bowling my first over in a game and I was really nervous. One of my team said: “You’ve got this Twinkle” – I felt so powerful. And I got a wicket!

I wasn’t expecting people to be such good sports, even when they lose. They’re always just happy to play. When people see you in your YPCC shirt they’ll always say “hi ya”. It makes me feel part of the community.

Emily, 8 yrs

We play in a big space and it makes me feel happy. It’s so good to be outside and not stuck at home. 

At first I wasn’t sure I really wanted to do it. But I’ve made new friends. And I improved really quickly, and my team-mates encouraged me. I used to worry about missing a shot – but now I know it’s not a big deal. There’s always the next one!

When my friends ask me what playing cricket feels like, I say: “it’s exhilarating!”
