Mill Hill Village Cricket Club is gearing up to host the Mill Hill Finches girls summer training programme, to begin on Wednesday, April 17 and continuing through Wednesday, July 31. The training sessions will run from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

The comprehensive programme, aimed at girls of all ages interested in cricket, offers a range of opportunities for skill development and game participation. For a membership fee of £150 for the season, participants will gain access to various benefits including priority placement in the Mill Hill Finches Wednesday training sessions at Mill Hill Village CC's Burtonhole Lane home.

Additionally, participants will have the option to attend mixed sessions at either Mill Hill Village CC or Finchley CC.

The membership also grants access to All Stars/Dynamos Sessions at Mill Hill Village CC and U10 softball cup fixtures (to be confirmed), and the option to play in mixed hardball fixtures.
