SMCC Women formed in 2009 and has grown to be a successful team over the past 11 years. In 2019, we won the inaugural Surrey Slam T20 tournament, while also going undefeated in the league to top Division 2 and win promotion to Division 1.
In 2020 our women’s squad grew by at least 12 new players and with our squad of Girls Under 12-14 players also coming through, we are now planning towards running two women’s squads in 2022. Including juniors of all ages as well as adults, we have around 90 female players at the club at the moment.
We are always on the lookout for new players – whatever your experience (or not) of playing cricket we want to hear from you. We’re a friendly bunch of teens and women with a variety of ages, ability and cricketing experience. We play competitively whilst still having fun. Anyone can join and train with us (school year 8+), so why not come along for a free session and check us out?

Outdoor training runs throughout the summer season at the club ground on Thursdays 6.30-8.30pm and normally starts in late April. The girls’ squads are the only other player who train on Thursdays in the summer, meaning an all-female environment other than some of the coaches.
Indoor training sessions in the spring are normally held on Sundays 4-6pm from early January to end of March. These are usually held in the sports hall at Alleyn’s School (click for location on Google Maps).
The training consists of coached sessions and nets. Sessions in 2020 were £10 and for new players the first session is free.
We sometimes run overseas tours. In 2017, we toured Trinidad and Tobago and in 2019 we played in the 6th Ladies 6-A-Side Festival at La Manga Club Cricket Resort in Spain. Were it not for COVID-19, we would have gone to the La Manga festival again in 2020.
In 2020, we played in the Surrey Trust League (Sunday afternoons) and played Twenty20 in the Women’s Surrey Smash East as the Streatham & Marlborough Hawks (mid-week evenings).
