Women's & Girls Cricket
As well as strong senior and junior men’s teams, Plumtree is one of only a few clubs in the Nottinghamshire area that has active women’s and girl’s sections.
The ladies section of Plumtree was set up in 2007 by Kevin Pickaver, Rosemary Dove, Susan Cuttell and Kelly Sladen. It continues to grow in size and ability. We welcome players of all ages and abilities to come and join the ladies section of the club.
In the summer we play in Division 3 of the Women’s Midlands League as well as competing in the Nottinghamshire T20 league mid-week which has a strong focus on bringing juniors and new players into ladies league cricket. We also try to arrange as many friendlies as possible. We train every Thursday almost all year round! In the summer training is held from 6-8pm at the Plumtree cricket ground. During the winter we have weekly training at a local school and we play in an women’s only indoor league on Tuesdays.
For the 2017 season we have several different coaches working with us throughout the winter and summer including level 3 coach Jim Hindson. Additionally 5 of the current women’s squad all hold ECB Level 1 coaching qualifications, 1 has level 2 and 2 of us hold ECB ACO level 1 umpire qualifications.
If you are interested in joining the ladies section then please get in contact with us either via this web-site, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact ladies captain Kelly Sladen on 07536074464. You can keep up to date with all the latest news, photos and match results on our ladies website www.plumtreeladiescc.weebly.
The girl’s section at Plumtree welcomes girls up the age of 15 (when they join the ladies). They play in the Nottingham Youth Cricket League in up to under 15 age group cricket. Girl’s training for ages 12-15 years is on Monday evenings during the summer. Girls under the age of 12 are encouraged to come to the colts training on a Friday evening. During the winter the girls train at a local school with the ladies section.
