Ladies cricket

I have been going through some of Judith’s research on letters received by the Public Parks Committee and found an intriguing entry for the 3rd of March 1880; a letter to Miss Gilpin of 2 Tennyson Street confirming availability of a ground on the Meadows for ‘your Cricket Club’.

Having looked a little bit further for any information on the early days of womens cricket in the city I came across this film of the first women’s test match, held in Nottingham.
