Girls cricket at Bentleigh Cricket Club

Bentleigh Cricket Club is committed to creating a supportive environment for local girls of all ages and abilities to enjoy cricket.

Girls aged 5 – 10: Junior Blasters and Master BlastersBlasters - Loads of fun

Junior Blasters and Master Blasters (previously called Milo In2 Cricket and T20 Blast) has seen an explosion in interest and participation of girls. From a handful of girls 5 years ago, girls now average 30% of our participants.

Junior Blasters is focused on 5- 7. It focuses on games and activities to develop skills and having fun. Girls can chose to participate in mixed or girl’s-only groups.
Master Blasters is a modified T20 version of the game ideal for ages  7 – 10. Our teams tend to be mixed teams as girls and boys start to learn the basics of game play. The format encourages girls and boys to participate in all aspects of the game fielding, batting, bowling and wicket keeping. A great foundation for girls to learn the skills and game play with a strong emphasis on making sure all are able to participate whatever their level of cricket skills.

Senior cricket for girls

Bentleigh Women’s team provides girls with the opportunity to continue their cricket. Some girls choose to play both girls and women’s cricket. The minimum age to play senior women’s cricket is 14, this allows mums and daughters the fantastic experience of playing together. The Women’s team plays in the Cricket Southern Bayside Women’s Competition in a Sunday afternoon T20 format.
