This week, nine schools took part in the Gillette Venus Regional Qualifiers for Auckland. The tournament started with two Pools; Westlake Girls, Mt Albert Grammar, Takapuna Grammar, Saint Kentigern and Mt Roskill Grammar battled it out in Pool A, while Epsom Girls, Baradene College, Glendowie College and Diocesan faced off in Pool B.
Community Cricket Manager Dean Bartlett said it is a special time for women and girls cricket with the Cricket World Cup less than a year away.
“It was awesome to see a festival environment with nine schools competing at Lloyd Elsmore Park.
“We hope all players, officials and supporters enjoyed their week in the sun and look forward to having even more schools involved next season.”
