Oxford CC Women – newsletter, January 2018

Indoor training

We are pleased to announce that our 1s have been promoted to WML Premier Division East for the 2018 season, and that we have again secured Magdalen College School for Winter training on Sundays from 6:00-7:30pm.

  • The first few sessions (Sundays 28th January to 25th February) will be for players who represented the 1s during the 2017 season, or who aspire to in 2018.
  • Winter training for all players will then start on Sunday 4th March and continue until 25th March.

Indoor league

Women's indoor teams

The indoor league is a mixture of development and more experienced players so is a great way to get back in and play some cricket early on in the season! Last year we entered two teams, it was great fun and the Oxford Kites were crowned Indoor champions too!

If you’re interested in playing, please email to let us know: oxfordccwomen@gmail.com

Other dates for your diary

Women’s Midlands League fixtures

Confirmed dates for the 1s and provisional dates for the 2s have now been published (subject to new teams entering the league). Our league matches now take place in April and July–September as a result of the new County and KSL Women’s Super League schedules.

New T20 knockout and 8-a-side competitions are in the pipeline to ensure that there will be plenty of weekend cricket during May and June, plus our usual midweek matches and softball cricket festivals. We will produce a full fixture list when we have more details.

New laws of cricket workshops, January and February 2018

Oxfordshire Association of Cricket Officials will be running update sessions on the Law changes for 2018. There are many changes to the Laws that will impact directly on all levels of cricket so it is important that all those involved in the game are aware of and understand the changes. These sessions are open to everybody in the game, umpires, scorers, coaches, captains, players, parents and are free to attend. Sessions will last approximately 2 hours.

One of the workshops will take place at Jordan Hill:

Scoring and umpiring courses on offer

Free online cricket scoring course

We’ve love for everyone in our teams to know how to score a cricket match! The ECB are now offering a free online course that is suitable both for complete beginners and existing scorers who want to improve their skills. On completion of the course you’ll receive an ECB ACO club scorer certificate.

Umpires’ course stage 1

This course is designed to give you an overview of the basic Laws of the game and how to apply them and introduce the principles of field craft and match management. It will give you the tools to enable you to umpire matches at the basic recreational level where there are no independent umpires appointed.

Umpires’ course stage 2

This course is designed to build on Umpire Education Stage One, covering further Laws and exploring the concept of working as part of a team with a colleague and the scorers. It is intended to introduce umpires to the skills and knowledge required to be members of a league panel. It is envisaged that participants, having completed the course, refresh their understanding of these Laws and study them more thoroughly by referring to the MCC on-line Laws Course.
