There’s plenty of free parking at the club. The entrance to the car park and training ground is off the Alcester Road, between Homepeal House and Green Wickets flats.
The pavilion is located right next to our training area and is open all evening to give access to water and the toilets.
There’s no need to get any special kit for training sessions. Most of us wear a t shirt and leggings, but you do need to wear trainers. If you start to play softball matches we have a team top to wear.
Matches are on Sundays through the summer and it’s not every week.
If you play softball then there’s no need to buy any equipment. For hard ball cricket the usual protective equipment is required but there is some spare kit available.
All sorts of women play with us at Kings Heath. Whether you are looking for an opportunity to do something fun, active and social or you think of yourself as a sporty and competitive person we welcome women of all shapes, sizes and physical abilities.
Our Women's softball coach is Louise Haydon. Over the 9 summer sessions Louise and a team of coaches will deliver an introduction to basic cricket skills for beginners and help to develop the abilities of more experienced players. If you have any more questions about the training or matches come along and have a chat.
Unfortunately, if there is heavy or persistent rain before or during training the session will be cancelled. You can check whether training will go ahead by calling the dedicated wet weather line: 07531 506893. If we are unlucky enough to have to cancel softball sessions, we will do our best to compensate with further sessions at a later date.
