Haynes backs growth in girls cricket

The Thunder Girls Cricket League kicks off this weekend with an expanded competition set to take place across Western Sydney and Regional NSW.


Eight week leagues will run before and after Christmas with the winner of each Spring League set to be presented their medals at Spotless Stadium on 8 January during the WBBL and BBL double header.

“It’s great to see girls cricket continuing to grow in the Thunder Nation,” said Sydney Thunder and Australia batter Rachael Haynes.


“We always get such fantastic support when we play games in Sydney and it is inspiring to see so many girls taking up the sport.


“I’m really looking forward to seeing the winners of the competition at Spotless Stadium this summer when we play the Melbourne Renegades.”

Competitions are set to take place in Parramatta, Canterbury, Penrith, Wagga Wagga, Albury-Wodonga and the ACT with places are still available. To find your local team visit playcricket.com.au.
