Girls' cricket at King’s goes from strength-to-strength. The
girls train regularly, especially during the Summer Term, and we run an
U15 team and a 1st team. During the winter the girls can join in with
the boys' training but there is also some specific girls' training. Last
year the U15s played in the T20 cup and the Broderick Trophy, making it
through to the final. This year we have entered the U15 team into the
Lady Taverner’s indoor competition which runs over the Lent Term. In
addition to these competitions the girls are also able to play regularly
in the boys' teambut will also take part in at least five girls'
fixtures during the season.
The girls made history last year by playing the first ever junior girls' house cricket matches on the first team wicket. This was a huge success and the girls really enjoyed playing. This year we are planning to run a junior and senior inter-house cricket competition.
We have currently have five county cricket players in the junior side and two county cricketers in the senior sides. Girls are also able to access the EPP programme that the school runs. This programme aims to support players into the professional game.
