In exciting news BWCUCC and Merivale-Papanui Cricket Club are collaborating to encourage girl’s and women’s cricket at time where there is a growing interest in the game.
The pathway for girl’s starts off in both club in Junior Cricket either in a or Friday night program, playing mixed cricket at club or school, or playing in a Year 5/6 Team for either club, and then moves into North West Women’s Cricket all the way from Year 7/8 to Youth Women’s Cricket and then to Women’s Cricket.
Currently the NWWC Convenor is Ross Hastings, with Angus McIntosh being the Coach of the Women’s Div1 side.
This is very much a development program for all girl’s and Women who wish to play cricket.
You can register here for the new season at CricHQ on the following link, please note if you have already registered at BWCUCC or MPCC then you will be transferred to NWWC:
MPCC and BWCUCC have been partners in girls and women’s cricket for over 10 years, mainly due to player numbers which means we often share and exchange players at different skills levels to form Girl’s only sides.
In 2015/16 there was the formation of the North West Zone for Woman’s cricket which is intended to provide a pathway for Youth Woman towards Premiers Woman’s cricket. As a club we fully support this focus of combining several clubs strengths to form age appropriate and skill levels sides to compete in the Christchurch Metro Competition.
Please contact the club if you have any specific enquiries with Women’s Cricket.
