Briana Ray to lead women’s hardball cricket session

Blazing trail: Briana Ray became the first female to take on the men this season in the Evening Cricket League

The BCB will be hosting a women’s hardball cricket session led by female cricketer Briana Ray at the National Sports Centre on Wednesday.

Briana, who has been playing cricket in the United Kingdom for five years, is currently studying at Loughborough University and has been playing cricket for their under-18, under-19 and university sides.

“Learning how to play hardball cricket may seem scary and intimidating at first but once you know how to properly catch, field and bowl safely it becomes easier,” she said.

“In women’s cricket, the ball doesn’t come as fast, so the best thing is to teach the basics and technique first with the bowling machine before facing the hardball.

“Watching and learning how to play the game is also helpful, but the more you play, the more you start to understand it.”

Since winter of 2021, the BCB has been facilitating a women’s cricket development programme in partnership with BF&M with more than 60 participants and three club teams — Warwick Workmen’s, Bailey’s Bay and Western Stars.

All those interested are invited to a hardball demonstration from 6.15pm to 7.30pm.

To register for the session or for more information, e-mail info@cricket.bm by Wednesday at 12pm.
