Women's Grade Cricket

Played across two divisions, competing teams play in the Lynne O'Meara Cup (40 and 50-over) and Glenda Hall Shield (20-over) competitions on a Saturday (second grade) or Sunday (first grade) during the summer.

Ahead of season 2021/22, Cricket ACT has announced there will be two divisions in the local women's grade competition.

This is an exciting development for local women's cricket, now catering for players with little or no experience as well as for more seasoned cricketers.
