Female Cricket

The popularity of women’s cricket has been rising globally. This exposure to women’s cricket has helped attract new players of all ages to the game we love. Nelson continues to produce amazing female cricketers with some going on to represent the Central Hinds and the New Zealand White Ferns such as Kate Pulford and Claudia Green. The growth of the women’s game within the region has seen the Nelson’s premier women’s team The Nyxons now playing in the Mike Shrimpton Trophy since the 2021/22 season. Whether you are an aspiring White Fern or just wanting to play for fun, Nelson Cricket Association has a range of all female playing options for all ages and skill-levels.
