About Dulwich ladies cricket
Ladies cricket in 2014
The ladies team welcomes all new members!
The club are looking for new players to join, aged 15 and above – no experience is necessary, just a love of sport played with a friendly, sociable team. The team currently plays in the Southern League Division 2, where the standard ranges from beginners through to Surrey County Age Group cricketers. A new coach has been appointed this year – John Fry, a Level 3 coach with experience of coaching women's cricket as well as Surrey County teams.
If you want to play in a friendly environment, make new friends, get fitter in the new year or want to play competitive cricket, Dulwich CC ladies offer an environment for players at all levels!

If you are not interested in playing, but fancy helping the team out some capacity to help us grow our ladies section, please do also get in touch.
The side began in 2004, as local coach and cricketer Lara arranged an exhibition session for women cricketers at the Burbage Road ground but it was not until 2006 that a fully fledged women's section became a reality.
Players were recruited from within the club, by word of mouth, through links with local schools and the website. Some players came through the Southwark and Surrey youth development programmes. Many arrived new to the game and some players came with previous cricketing experience. During the first historic season, one match was played away at Caterham in September 2006 which was won by Caterham. 2007 saw more games and more players. The first match at Burbage Road was a 15 over fixture in June 2007 between the cricket and hockey sections. The bigger hitting hockey side, who fielded some players with cricketing experience, won by 44 runs. In 2009 the team started playing in the National Ladies South Section league
