Women's Cricket

Women's Cricket was revived in 2001 with ad hoc matches being played throughout the season.

As official Women's League started in the 2004-05 season and grew to consist of six teams competing in the 2009-2010 season. The Hong Kong Cricket Club has two representative sides in the HKCA Women's League, playing most of their fixtures at Po Kong Village Road, Kwun Tong, with occasional games at HKCC - 'HKCC Willow Wielders' and 'HKCC Cavaliers'.

I didn’t quite think that I would start my time off at Hong Kong amidst a T8 Typhoon. However, it seemed that there was no other way to introduce me to this wonderful place than by reminding me of the adventure I was about to be face. It has been exactly this – an adventure. It has also helped tremendously that the community at the Club has been so incredible at making me feel at home and this has helped me settle in very comfortably.

But most importantly, I was ecstatic to be greeted by a group of girls who are undeniably passionate about playing this sport and are truly keen to improve each week.

Whilst the Cavaliers were met with some tough opposition first up in the league, losing to CCC, they put up a tremendous fighting spirit against the Willow Wielders in the local derby, taking it down to the last ball of the match. Unfortunately, the Willow Wielders proved to be the stronger side at the end of the day and walked away with another well-deserved victory. This means they remain undefeated this season under their new Captain, Marina Lamplough.

A few of our girls also represented Hong Kong during the East Asia Cup which was held in September and hosted locally. They made us all very proud as Hong Kong managed to win the tournament very convincingly. Congratulations to all our girls who were part of this incredible tournament.

September also saw us hold our first Ladies Social/Team Building for the season by getting the girls together for a little bit of Barefoot Lawn Bowls. Whilst there was no clear winner towards the end of the night it is fair to say that it was a fantastic evening of good laughs and great food. Thank you to all who came down to support it as well.

Whilst I cannot quite predict the local weather yet, or get used to the humidity and heat, one thing I am definitely getting used to is seeing some great talent amongst the girls and some admirable work ethic to go along with it.

There are still many good things to come for this season and I am looking forward to seeing some great performances in the respective leagues.
