Senior Women's Cricket

We are really excited to have brought Women’s Cricket back to YPCC. We currently field two senior women’s teams in the NWMCA T20 Competition.

Bringing back women’s teams in 2019, almost 100 years after Youlden Kensington first fielded one, was a long held goal for YPCC. The club also fielded a women’s team in the 1930s and even called state and Australian representative, Lesley Rhodes, a member.

Our focus now is on growing women’s participation in cricket by offering a friendly, safe and inclusive environment. We warmly welcome women of all ages and abilities / experience levels from absolute beginner to returning and experienced players.

 

Matches and training

Senior women’s matches are at 12pm on Sunday and last about 2.5 hours. 

The women’s teams train at 6pm on Thursdays at Ryder Oval & Nets

Home matches are played on a turf wicket on the Ransford Oval.

Preseason training commences in August each year. Details of the 2021 preseason schedule can be found here.

Fees and requirements

Fees are $230 per season or $25 per match casual rate.

YPCC women play in a navy club shirt and navy shorts/pants (good news, no whites required).

No cricket kit required: we can lend you what you need
