Cornwall Cricket Centre hosted the first Women’s Indoor Softball festival of the year with six teams turning out to take part. Most of the women have only been playing the game since the summers initiation of the activity, but they all had a great time.
Each team played three games of six a-side cricket over the 3 1/2 hours of activity. The games were played with a kwik cricket ball and plastic bats over 18yds. The games were quick, (25 minutes), so there was minimal waiting.
A great atmosphere was generated through music to break the potential quiet which also generated great enthusiasm and at time some interesting running between the wickets.
The teams who took part were, Mt Ambrose Cricket Club, Wadebridge Cricket Club with 2 teams, Nancledra (winners), Gwinear and Falmouth Cricket Club.
There were young players from 9 years to your late 40’s playing which was excellent to see.
In total there were 38 players playing, hitting 4’s and 6’s, nudging the ball into gaps, showing an understanding of how to play the game.
The next festival is on the 10th February 2019 at Callywith College (Bodmin), between the times of 1:00 – 4:30pm.
