The Hampton under 13 Stage 1 girls teams played the last match for the season last Wednesday. We entered the season with ambition of starting up one girls team and enabling an increase in girls participation in cricket. Through the hard work of Gav Lewis, Pat Dieter, Rob Huxley, Karen Grimmer and Rod Rae, plus many more, we achieved two teams of girls.
To see the development from the first few weeks at training to the last game where the girls played so well was very exciting.
Hampton cricket club increased girls participation in junior cricket from 5 to 40 girls this season. We will be working hard to grow girl participation and development in the coming years as part of our focus in investing in junior sport.
Thanks to the Coaches and TM’s named above plus the girls for giving their best at training and matches each week.
Also appreciate the support from Bendigo Bank in providing grants that support girls sport and the banks passion for supporting the community.
