Women's Winter World Cup!!!

Women’s Winter World Cup – Week 1 & 2 Report


Derbyshire Cricket Board is running an indoor softball competition at Willows Sports Centre. The winner of this will progress to the East Midlands Finals Day at Loughborough University. This, so far, has been a great opportunity for women who participated in our summer softball offer to further showcase their skills as well as prepare for the coming season. The indoor format was new to many of the players but they have adapted their skills very impressively over the first 2 weeks. It has been a very exciting and enjoyable start to the competition!


Derbyshire has had 6 teams enter, registering over 70 players to take part across the 5 weeks! These teams are Ilkeston Rutland, Belper Meadows, Belper Amateurs, South Derbyshire, Duffield and Long Eaton. A double round robin format means each team is to play 10 games each. After the first two weeks all teams have played 4 times and there have been a number of close matches. South Derbyshire and Belper Meadows have made strong, unbeaten starts. They both top the table with 12 points but with 6 matches still to play, a lot can happen between now and the final round of fixtures! What has been great to see is the amount of support each team has been bringing with them. It is very encouraging for the women’s game that this competition is so well supported and shows that the clubs involved are placing some focus on their women and girls sections.

Good look to all the teams for the remaining 3 weeks of the competition!
