FEMALES have the opportunity to take up cricket this year Berkswell Cricket Club confirmed they are set to launch a women’s and girl’s team.

The club is expanding to form two new teams in 2015 following the appointment of new head of women’s cricket Sarah Ginn.

Berkswell’s new women’s section will play in the Midlands League, which is the biggest women’s league in the country with a Premier Division that boasts many current England players.

The teams will enter Division Three and will play a total of ten fixtures against teams across the Midlands.

“It’s anticipated that our new Berkswell side will be a mix of experienced players, up and coming youngsters, and players new to the game.” said Ginn.

“We are always looking for new members and welcome all standards to our training nights, which get underway on Thursday nights at Westwood School in Coventry from February 5.”

Winter practice sessions at Westwood School will start at 6:30pm and competitive fixtures will start at the end of April, along with outdoor net and fielding sessions.

Plans are in place to field a further team in the Warwickshire 8-a-side T20 league on Tuesday nights throughout the summer.

A brand new junior girls section, at Under 13 and Under 11 age groups initially, will also start training after the Easter and the team hope to be involved in the Warwickshire softball festival leagues during the summer.
