Although there are a number of girls playing cricket at the junior level, the integration of women’s cricket into our country programme is still at the initial stages and a long way from imitating Australia's sucess, or indeed of England where Sarah Taylor is on the verge of infiltrating the men's domain!
There have been girls activities at several Junior clubs (Zurich Crickets, Gingins CC and Basel CC), involving training and matches in conjunction with the boys, and there has been some investment in women's cricket equipment by the SCA (clothing/protective clothing) and Cossonay CC (bats, balls), meaning the S.C.A. is better able to support the training/playing requirements.
We expect to organise a women's event towards the end of the season, preceeding the SCA league final match. In addition, futher matches will be organised depending on availability of players.
Cossonay CC intends to organise a Women's introduction to cricket day, similar to 2009 season to attract new members and other clubs are encouraged to replicate this effort to further strengthen women's cricket development in the country.
