‘Lady Taverners’ Indoor U13 / U15 Girls 8-a-Side Competitions 2013
With an aim to provide quality Indoor Cricket Competitions for U13 & U15 Secondary School Girls during the winter months, the Lancashire Cricket Board invites your school to enter the Lady Taverners Indoor U13 and / or U15 Girls 8-a-Side Comps.
The aim of these Indoor Cricket Competitions is to provide girls with an opportunity to play and develop within the game. Inter Cricket is an inclusive game which bridges the progression from softball to hardball cricket.
For all local area competitions Inter Cricket equipment is desirable, however, wooden bats and junior sized incrediballs will be used for match play. Inter Cricket equipment will be provided for use at all local and County Finals days and if so preferred schools may bring their own.
Local tournaments week: 4th – 8th February.

- 5th February GH Carnell Sports Centre (Trafford)

(Please note that the tournaments for U13s will be played in the mornings 9:30am – 12:00pm and U15s in the afternoon 12:30pm – 3:30pm)
All entries will be entered on a first come first served basis. U13s County Finals day will be held on Tuesday February 26th at GH Carnell Sports Centre (Trafford) and the U15s County Finals day will be held on Tuesday March 5th at GH Carnell Sports Centre (Trafford). All regional and national finals (TBC).
The 6 best teams from local tournaments will compete in both age groups in their respective County Finals. The whole tournament is based on the development of Girls Cricket in Secondary Schools. The ECB / LCB see this as a high priority and the competition is a great tool to raise the profile of Girls Cricket across the county within schools. We also use this as talent identification for potential county players.
At local and county tournaments, teachers will have the opportunity to meet Jenny Laycock (LCB Women and Girls Cricket Development Officer) and in some cases your local Cricket Development Coaches who will be able to offer advice and support to schools on topics ranging from Coaching in Schools, Competitions and other cricket resources.
