Kemsing CC in Tonbridge have this season committed to starting a women’s softball cricket section and have seen some immediate success.
Helen Fagg, Kent’s Women’s & Girls’ Cricket Manager attended a recent training session to find out a little more about what has been happening at the club and commented “this season, we have seen the most noticeable growth in Women’s Softball Cricket and Kemsing Cricket Club are the latest to achieve their goal of getting a section up and running. It is fantastic to see the growth at the club and our challenge is now to link them in with the ever growing women’s cricket network across the county”
In their first ever training session, 23 ladies attended for some softball cricket drills and game play and were gifted some New Balance Softball Cricket bats. Despite only being a small village club with 4 junior age groups: U9, U11, U13 and U15, the club now has a number of women & girl’s enjoying some form of cricket at the club and it’s an exciting time to be a female member.
