Welcome to Oxford Women’s Cricket. You have come to the right place!
We are the largest women’s section in Oxfordshire, including all levels of player from beginners to county standard, and everyone in between. We are a friendly and sociable group, who really work hard at getting the balance right between having fun and training to win.
During 2017 over 50 players represented our teams, with standards ranging from from ECB Division 1 league games to beginners’ tournaments played with a soft ball. The squads train on the same evenings and learn from each other, and there are opportunities all the time to develop and improve your game.
We are proud to have two league teams who play in the ECB Women’s Midlands League. Our First XI play in Division 1, while our Second XI play this season in Division 4 South. In 2017, our First XI finished second in Division 1, while our Second XI came 3rd and hope to be pushing for promotion in 2018.
For beginners and newer players, our Oxford Kites development team play midweek and Sunday games throughout the season, and the tournaments at the end of our beginner women’s softball cricket sessions were very well received. Our two squads in the 2017 Vipers Indoor League were of roughly equal strength, mixing experienced and newer players so that everyone was able to develop their game.
We are coached by two experienced cricketers, with ECB level 2 and level 2.5 qualifications. We also offer the chance for our players to take coaching qualifications, and currently boast a number of Level 2 and 2.5 coaches in the team.
If you are looking to play senior level women’s cricket, look no further, as we welcome new players all the time:
- Experienced players.
- Players who have not played in a while.
- Under 15 and under 17 players who want to play at senior level.
- University players looking for more coaching.
- If you are aged 6-13, you should start out with our girls-only and mixed youth sessions unless you are already experienced enough to be playing to a good County under 13 standard.
If you want to play cricket – we‘ll get you playing cricket!
