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 Tuesdays and 5:30pm on Thursdays at Ryder Oval & Nets.
Home matches are played on a turf wicket on the Ransford Oval.
Preseason training commences on 13th August for the 2023-24 season. Details of the 2023 preseason schedule can be found here.

Fees and requirements
Membership fees for the 2023-24 season are as follows:
Fees are $220 per season if paid directly to YP, $223.96 if paid when registering via PlayHQ, 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.
Note – In addition to the above fees a yearly Cricket Australia fee of $22.50 is payable when registering. If you have played winter cricket in 2023, or Youlden Parkville is not the first club you have registered with for the 2023-24 season, you will not have to pay the $22.50 when registering with Youlden Parkville.
