Womens Quick Smash 2018 Version

Womens Quick Smash Cricket in South Canterbury

South Canterbury Cricket Association is again looking to run the popular “Womens Quick Smash” competition for all interested females to play.

The competition will be called “Women’s Quick Smash”. It will played on Monday nights starting on the 12th November from 5.30-7pm (90 mins only).

It will be played with an “incrediball” which while still solid is nowhere near as hard as a cricket ball, thus eliminating the need to wear pads, helmets gloves etc.

  • Teams will be 8-a-side, and everybody will bat for the same amount of time (3 overs per pair).
  • If you get out you keep on batting, you just lose some runs off your total.
  • It will be 12 overs per side, with bowlers bowling from one end only.

There is no cost to enter and it is open to all females from primary through to adults. Schools are encouraged to enter teams and clubs as well.

Grab your friends and put a team together and have some fun !

If you can make up a team you can enter by ringing South Canterbury Cricket or emailing Shane Gilkison or Mark Medlicott.

Alternatively if you are an individual who is keen to take part, then get in touch and we will make sure you are allocated a team in which to play.

At this stage, depending on numbers we plan to have 6 games prior to Xmas (Nov-Dec) and 6 rounds after Xmas (Feb-March).

If we have enough numbers/teams we are very keen to develop two tiers – perhaps with younger girls having their own competition but with help from the higher level.

Please get in touch if you would like to participate or with any questions.

Here’s what some of the girls had to say last year
