Girls' teams

Our Girls U9-11s playing at home in the summer of 2020.

This section currently contains details of the 2020 summer term / outdoor cricket season. Details of the 2021 summer term will appear here during the 2021 spring term. When new courses and camps are bookable, we always publish information here on the website first (please look here first rather than emailing us). We then email parents on our mailing list.

A local centre for girls' cricket

Our numbers of girls has doubled each of the last three years. In 2019, we had 50 girls playing cricket at the club, all between schools year Reception and school year 8, with the majority in school years 2-7. We believe we're rapidly becoming the 'go to' club in the local area for girls of these ages.

U9-11 soft-ball and U11-13 hard-ball teams aimed at girls

In 2020 we will be aiming to double our numbers again, especially in school years 3-8 and will run two squads of around 20-30 girls:

  • Under 11s soft-ball (years 4-6), playing in the Surrey Cricket Foundation Smash-it girls' league

  • Under 13s hard-ball (years 6-8), playing in the North Kent Junior League Girls 13s division

SMCC Girls' first match in 2017 - SMCC vs Dulwich, was played in a great spirit with some of the girls having played together in a joint "Streatham & Dulwich" team only a few weeks earlier.

Training

Our indoor training over the winter and spring terms are mixed as we don't currently have sufficient numbers to run girls only sessions. We know that many of the girls enjoy playing with the boys anyway.

In the summer term of 2020, there will be dedicated training sessions for the two girls's teams. See Summer season training for details.

Ladies' team

From age 13 (school year 8) upwards, girls are also eligible to, and will be encouraged to, play for the senior SMCC Ladies team. The ladies & girls section is a thriving section of the club. For further details, see the Women's Cricket section on our main website.

Representative cricket

We will continue to work with Surrey and London Schools Cricket Association to give our girls every opportunity to play representative cricket.
