RCC are delighted to welcome their first female coach (probably in over 200 years) in Fredrica Arlow who will take immediate responsibility for training and coaching our 6-10 year olds as well as any female Cricketers at the club.
It's really important that Cricket is an all-inclusive sport and Rickmansworth is already delighted to be one of the most open clubs with Annual Subscriptions a fraction of the cost of other clubs in Hertfordshire. This new undertaking underlines the clubs desire to become a true community club welcoming everyone.
"We have to make a difference to people, if we want Cricket to remain relevant in the next 20 years" said Chairman Taz Shehabi "and this is a first step for us as we head towards parity between women and men players". All players are welcome to join us and in particular we hope to see more women and girls swell the ranks in the coming months.
Fredi (as she prefers to be known) played Cricket to a good standard in Sussex before injuries curtailed what looked like a promising sporting endeavor. However, injury recovered, Fredi is looking forwards to putting something back into the Sport she loves and encouraging participation for both girls and boys against the backdrop of one of the oldest Cricket Clubs in Hertfordshire.
Rickmansworth was properly established in 1787, however there is evidence of games played between Rickmansworth and Pinner dating back to 1760 and Uxbridge in 1780.
