Gwent Girls

Youth Cricket in Gwent is completely ‘open’ throughout with girls able to play in all competitions.  The game is as much a girls’ game as it a boys’ with the only difference being in the ‘strength’ activities such as fast bowling and six-hitting which manifests itself as they move into adulthood.  To reflect this, girls can play ‘one year down’ at Under 11 and Under 13 and ‘two years down’ at Under 15.

For the first time, in 2008, a team of girls was entered in the The Monmouthshire Building Society Youth Cricket League at Under 11 with the girls still being able to play in the mixed teams of their clubs. In 2010 there were three girls teams in the League: Lisvane, Newport and Gwent Girls (whose girls come from teams across Gwent).  With Lisvane moving their team to the Cardiff & Vale League there now remains teams at U11, U13 and U15, all from Newport. 

Girls' Cricket is still at an early stage of development but fifteen Gwent players  represented Wales in 2012 while four were in the Wales Emerging Excellence Programme.
