A Women’s Cricket Section was formed at the Club in 2002 when Waverley Ladies’ Cricket Club merged with us. One of our founder members was involved with Bramley CC (south of Guildford) which is an interesting historical link because the first recorded Ladies’ Cricket matches was played at Bramley in the 18th century.
Guildford Women’s Cricket has made steady progress on the field. We joined the Women’s Cricket Southern League upon its formation in 2004. In 2007, we won promotion to Division 2. In 2011, we achieved promotion again and played in the Championship in the Women’s Cricket Southern League in 2012, which was one level below the ECB Women’s Premier League.
In 2021, the Women’s 1st XI were crowned champions of Surrey Division 1. This season the team will feature in the Championship for longer form games and the Elite T20 competition. The Women’s 2nd XI play in the Surrey Slam. Fixtures are usually either T20 or 35 over matches.
All Women’s teams continue to provide a platform for new and young players to develop their skills, techniques and knowledge of the game.
Surrey Slam – Thunder
The Women’s Team is called the Thunder and their captain is Tbc
The Surrey Slam is a T20 league played by more than 100 teams across the county. Initially the groups are organised regionally before moving on to a knock out phase.
1st XI players are exempt and most sides have a mixture of seniors and juniors. Guildford made their debut in the 2019 season.
