Ladies Softball Competition 19th August

It’s was the turn of the ladies to take to the wicket last Sunday at the Women’s Softball Tournament arranged by OCB and kindly held at Tiddington CC.  Sadly (like other teams within ARCC) we were not able to field a full squad due to availability issues, but Claire, Kate, Charlie and Mandy were joined by Alison, Una and Andrea to form the ARCC team.

The first match was lost to the eventual tournament winners The TCC Vixens. We lost too many wickets and bowled too many wides & no balls (not helped by some poor umpiring decisions, and the fact we were playing on the outfield with no true wicket).

For our second and third matches we luckily were drawn to play on the other pitch which not only provided us with an artificial wicket but also a much fairer Umpire!  We won our second game convincingly with a good number of boundaries and taking a few wickets too.  The final match was a much closer afair, but again we came out victorious.

Thanks to OCB and Tiddington CC for organising, and to Nigel R for umpiring (well the others were grateful to you even if we weren’t!). Lots of fun and perhaps something we could host ourselves at ARCC next season.
