Women’s Cricket in the USA
The sport of Cricket is little known and not well understood in the USA. And the fact that women play cricket here is almost completely hidden from the public’s view. But that is changing. Women’s cricket is very young here but as people find out about it, the interest is picking up. 2010 saw the second gathering of women cricketers nationally to play matches and display talent from which the USA Women’s Cricket Team was selected. This tournament had five teams competing while in 2009, only two teams were pulled together to compete.
Now there are several other groups around the USA who are planning to create permanent teams for women. This is exciting for all those women who wish to participate in this great sport.
In the San Francisco Bay Area
In the San Francisco bay area, the first club team of women playing with the regular cricket ball in the USA was formed in May 2009. Through the encouragement from those efforts, another team of female players was pulled from the tennis ball league in the Seattle area to start playing with the regular cricket ball. In June 2009 and September 2009, these two teams met in the Pacific Coast Women's Invitational Cricket Tournament. It is expected that this tournament will continue in future years with at least these two teams participating.
