On Friday 1st July 2016 the Cricket Club held a charity  20:20 cricket match between HCC Team Members and a team of Bath Rugby Legends.  The event was held to raise money for Dorothy House Hospice Care and Bath Rugby Foundation.  Generously supported by local sponsors it was a great evening of cricket, with a BBQ, bar and raffle and the chance for autograph hunters to meet some of their w Hinton Charterhouse Cricket Club, Branch Road, Hinton Charterhouse, Somerset, BA2
WOMENS CRICKET Women’s   Cricket   at   Hinton   Charterhouse   Cricket   Club   Summer   2018   saw   an   exciting   start   to   Women’s   Soft   Ball   Cricket   at Hinton Charterhouse Cricket Club. At   the   clever   suggestion   of   local   Under   11   player   William Abercrombie,   a   charity   softball   cricket   ‘Mum’s   versus   U11s   Sons   & Daughters’   match   was   held   earlier   in   June   to   raise   funds   for   the   club.      After   some   initial   training   from   Hannah   Baker, supported   by   a   liberal   dose   of   ongoing   coach/refereeing,   the   mums   were   let   loose   against   their   offspring   putting   out   two women’s   teams.      And   the   women   did   not   let   themselves   down!   There   were   definitely   some   shocked   children’s   faces   that   a. their   mum   could   throw   a   ball   and   b.   even   had   the   temerity   to   catch   or   stump   them   out…   and   although   overall   both   the children’s   teams   won   their   rounds   and   went   through   to   the   final,   the   women   gave   a   very   credible   showing   and   well   deserved the subsequent glass of celebratory bubbly. Since   June,   and   spurred   on   by   the   success   of   this   initial   event,   and   warmly   encouraged   by   Katie   Borton,   we   have   been investigating   interest   in   starting   an   ongoing   women’s   cricket   team   for   Hinton   Charterhouse   Cricket   Club,   with   currently   over 30 names keen to get involved next season in 2019. Already   this   season   we   have   met   informally   for   a   number   of   training   sessions   ably   (patiently)   coached   by   James   Jacob,   and   a group   of   seven   of   us   played   at   the   Somerset   Cricket   Board   ‘Bubbles   and   Bats’   event   in   August.   We   played   three   matches, winning   one   and   coming   very   close   in   the   second,   resulting   in   a   position   of   4th   overall   in   the   fun   tournament.      Of   particular note   was   Suzy   Bendry’s   amazing   one-handed   catch   which   earned   her   a   significant   trophy!         We   were   already   able   to   see   how much   we   had   improved   in   only   a   month   or   so   and   did   not   let   ourselves   down   at   all.      We   are   now   looking   at   other   possible   fun tournaments before the end of  the season. Looking   ahead   to   2019,   we   believe   we   have   enough   interest   to   start   our   own   women’s   team   at   Hinton   Charterhouse   Cricket Club,   with   coaching,   matches   and   kit. At   present   it   looks   likely   that   this   will   be   on   a   Friday   evening,   after   some   of   the   younger children’s   sessions   have   finished.   There   are   a   number   of   local   women’s   teams   that   we   can   play   and   will   be   planning   out   a fixture   schedule   later   in   the   year.   If   this   is   something   you   might   be   interested   in   (no   experience   required)   please   email   Nicola Smith   at   We   would   also   welcome   anyone   who   might   be   interested   in   sponsoring      our team!
