We talk to three members of the Conwy Celts Ladies Cricket Team.
Llinos Hill, Emma Leighton-Jones and Dona Jones talk about how they got interested in the game, how they got started and what they get out of playing. There is a difference in stories, with Llinos starting to play as a young girl and Emma and Dona being more recent converts.
They talk about what is important to them in playing as well as the brand of softball cricket that they play. Llinos talks about the pressures of being both coach and player and all of them talk about their hopes for the team and their own individual performances in what is left of the season.
They represent the growing band of women and girls who are turning to cricket for fun, recreation and friendship. Their experience is being matched in all corners of Wales and is one of the most exciting narratives about the modern game in both its professional and recreational forms.
For those women and girls in the Conwy area, they can get information about the Conwy Celts here:
