Bentleigh Cricket Club is committed to creating a supportive environment for girls of all ages and abilities to enjoy cricket.
Girls aged 5 – 10:
Junior Blasters and Master Blasters
Junior Blasters and Master Blasters 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 age 5 - 7. It focuses on games and activities to develop skills and having fun. Click here for more info
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.
Girls aged 9 – 13:
All Girls Cricket Competition
For girls ready to join competition cricket we offer the opportunity to play in the All Girls Cricket Competition. There is no set minimum age to play, however we would suggest age 9 is when girls start being ready for competition cricket. Girls are also welcome to join our Rookies and other junior teams and we have a number of girls who play in both the All Girls teams and other junior mixed teams at the club.
Girls 14 & Under play on Wednesday nights at 5:00 - 7:30pm.
Ages based on age as at 1st September of the current season year.
Training is undertaken at Bentleigh Reserve on Friday nights 5:00 to 6:00pm.
Our team welcomes players of all abilities and experience. Prior experience is not required. We operate an equipment loan scheme so you don't need to go out and buy lots of expensive equipment.
