Girls Cricket


These are very exciting times for girls in the New Forest area who are interested in trying out cricket - and the options available have never been so good!

2014 saw the introduction of the first Girls Only cricket league for New Forest with Sway being a founding member. The season was a great success so in 2016 there were two leagues for different age groups with Sway entering a side in each league:

Girls U13s

Girls U15s

Aside from the girls only league, girls can also play in the mixed colts teams that Sway run - from U9s to U17s. The league rules are that girls can play "2 years down" so for example an U13 girls could, if she wished play for the U11s mixed side and an U15 girl could play for the U13s etc.

Finally, the youngest girls are most welcome in our introductory kwik cricket sessions which run on Saturday mornings - more details here

As with the boys, there is the potential for girls to take their interest in cricket further - from club cricket through to New Forest District  representation then through onto Hampshire County representation and beyond.
