There is also an Under 12 girls league which plays on a Tuesday evening. There are also playing opportunities in the winter with an U12 and U14 indoor league that starts in November each year.

Under 11 Competitions:
The format played in the early season is pairs, 8-a-side friendly games, which are played on a Sunday morning with 10am starts. The pair’s format is used to give all players a chance to be involved in the game and continue to develop their skills across all aspects of the sport.
Later in the season the U11s play a competitive cup competition of 8-a-side, but in the more traditional format of cricket. We run a cup and plate finals day where the final four teams in each competition teams get a chance to attend a finals day.
