Women's Indoor Sixes Success

24 Feb

The latest women’s indoor took place at Craigholme School in Edinburgh on Sunday 23rd February.  

Indoor cricket has always been a favourite with the ladies and Sunday’s competition was no different, as 12 teams registered to take part.

The growing number of teams showing interest shows emphasises the work being done in Clubs and schools around the country to develop the girls’ and women’s game. 

A change in game format and number of games meant each team played three games each.  The tables below show the number of points and wickets taken by each team.  Teams were awarded 2 points for a win. 

Cricket Scotland women’s development manager Kari Carswell was delighted with the event, “Having 12 teams along to play is great, it proved to be a bit of a headache trying to fit everything in but everybody got some match practice so that’s a relief. 

We saw some familiar faces and some new players playing for the very first time.  The strength of the game and the support from the players, coaches and supporters is great to see.  There was a real buzz around the place today, and I hope that we see the same amount of enthusiasm for the next two indoor competitions.  

Some of the skills on show were unbelievable and it’s amazing to think that only a few years ago we only ran one tournament and now we have four, and might need to add more!” 

The next two competitions will take place at Dollar Academy from 10am-2pm on 23rd March, before anbother on 27th April at Mary Erskine Sports Centre from 10-4pm.
