Women`s Softball Festival

Duffield Cricket Club were the hosts for the second festival of the summer hosted by Derbyshire Cricket Board. 7 teams entered for this festival hoping to claim the winning prize of 8 Women`s Cricket World Cup tickets here at Derby. The glass of prosecco on arrival was appreicated by all players and this started the day off successfully. 


The festival was set up with 3 matches per round, enabling 7 rounds to take place throughout the day. All teams played eachother once and the leaderboard was updated throughout the day. Although the day was all about softball cricket being fun, engaging, interactive, social and for beginner`s, their were prizes for;

Winning Team / Most Bonus Runs Scored / Best Celebration

After a group warm up was led by Rebekah Grimley, the fixtures were announced and play got under way- The prizes that were on offer were Women`s Cricket World Cup tickets.


All females that took part were extremely motivated throughout the day, encouraging their teams and showcasing their best celebrations. The celebration award was a tough decision for the hosts to make, but Helen Hancock was a deserving winner of this award for her fantastic efforts and celebrations continously throughout the day.

The winning team were Duffield Ladies CC, for their unbeaten run of 6 games with fantastic displays of batting/bowling and fielding.


The award for the most bonus runs scored throughout the day went to Vicky Fox for her exceptional 32 in the final game of the day. A great day was held by all at Duffield CC and the spirit of the game was exceptional at all times and the day was full of non-stop laughter, determination and social engagement.
