Thats the message that the Alice Springs Cricket Association womens competition is spreading ahead of their season launch this month. The new womens season will kick off in the Red Centre on Thursday October 17 with momentum building just three weeks out. The competition will for the first time feature a fifth team with the sport growing leaps and bounds in recent years according to Community Cricket Manager Matt Henderson. The Alice Tigers is the latest club to put a side in and they are going to be supported by the Alkamilya Football Club, Henderson said. They wanted something to do in the summer which reflects I guess the work weve been doing to grow womens cricket over the last few years. To seem them get on board is really exciting and good for the competition. The women that have been playing for a long time are really excited by that too. It really is a family atmosphere at the games too, a place to bring the whole family down. With the season less than three weeks away, there is still time for players both new and old to register to play. New co-chair of the womens subcommittee Marlie Dawes began playing cricket in Alice Springs herself three years ago, and hasnt looked back since starting. This is my third year playing.

Its a great atmosphere. We all train together so we get to know each other and have a good bond. We arent out there playing for sheep stations. Were there to have fun and better womens cricket in town here. Wed love to get as many people involved as we can.
