Despite the sweltering heat and having been only introduced to the sport this summer all 32 girls really took on the challenge. Amy Bartlett in the 6th form kindly helped officiate on the day and the head of women’s and girls’ cricket at Henley Cricket Club, Damaris Hayward ran the event and made all the girls feel very welcome.

The mixed year 7 and 8 team won the Bronze Cup play off and the year 7 team won the Gold Cup play off.

Isla Calver and Claudia Mowatt were both selected by the umpires for awards.
