Hot Shots seek crick­eters

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - WDCA CRICKET: 2017 - 2018 SEASON -

The War­ragul Dis­trict Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion will hold a fe­male cricket in­for­ma­tion fo­rum on Wed­nes­day Oc­to­ber 18.

Women and girls who may be in­ter­ested in hav­ing a go at cricket (no ex­pe­ri­ence nec­es­sary, only an in­ter­est in cricket) are urged to at­tend.

The fo­rum will be held on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 18 at East­ern Park cricket ground, Nor­manby St War­ragul at 7pm.

War­ragul Cricket Club will make their train­ing nets avail­able from 6pm for those who would like to have a hit be­fore­hand.

All are en­cour­aged to at­tend as all ques­tions can be an­swered.

With the rise of fe­male cricket in Aus­tralia, the War­ragul Dis­trict Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion is try­ing to gain in­ter­est from any fe­male in the dis­trict on the pos­si­bil­ity of start­ing an allfe­male com­pe­ti­tion within the As­so­ci­a­tion.

Cur­rently the only fe­male com­pe­ti­tion avail­able lo­cally is the Gipp­s­land Cricket League women’s com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­days, in which the War­ragul Hot­shots com­pete.

The War­ragul Hot­shots women’s team has been play­ing cricket ev­ery sec­ond Sun­day dur­ing the sea­son since their for­ma­tion in 2010. It started as an idea to get more fe­males on a cricket pitch in the War­ragul and Dis­trict Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion, and it has come a long way.

The Hot­shots played off in a grand fi­nal af­ter only three years in the Gipp­s­land Cricket League com­pe­ti­tion.

Not only has the As­so­ci­a­tion seen young girls and older women come and go, it has seen the im­mense im­prove­ment of ev­ery player as they were a part of the team. Most of the play­ers en­joy play­ing in a fe­male only en­vi­ron­ment with no pres­sure.

The aim of any com­pet­i­tive sport­ing team is to win, but the larger goal is to give ev­ery team mem­ber a fair go and to en­cour­age them to take part and im­prove their skills.
