FEMALE CRICKET

In 2016 Ballarat entered into the world of junior female cricket and has never looked back. Our programs have been steadily growing and adapting to the needs and desires of the participants and will continue to do so thanks to the wonderful work of those volunteers that make it all happen.

The Ballarat Cricket Association endorses Cricket Australia's Junior Formats, as outlined below: -

We have a growing number of BCA Clubs currently involved in our junior female programs with most involved in, or looking to be, the above displayed programs on offer.

Season 2022/2023 will see a Wednesday afternoon female U11 competition (Stage 1), Friday afternoon female U14 competition (Stage 2), a Tuesday afternoon female U17 competition (Stage 3) and a senior women's competition.
