CLUB History

Come and join us….

Come and join us….

The Optimists' Maidens Cricket Club grew out of the enthusiasm of a few ladies who, during the 1992 season,
formed a team, played a couple of matches against Belgian teams and got hooked on playing cricket rather than baking cakes, making sandwiches and pouring tea for the men's
matches! The club was officially created and registered in 1993 with 18 members, a few of which are still playing for the OMCC today! Although we are an independent club, we are very grateful to have the full support of our father club, the OCC,
who regularly organise cricket clinics, coaching, umpiring and scoring courses which many Maidens have taken and passed as well as providing us with qualified coaches and umpires
from their ranks.

We welcome new members who wish to join our very socialable club. Wednesdays werevquite busy for us. We played friendlies against the European Parliament (x2), the European Court of Auditors (x2), Cargolux, ex-AngloAmerican and the so-called "Senior Optimists". Training was held every Wednesday
and sometimes, due to enthusiasm shown, on Mondays too. Special thanks, of course, to our great coach, Deepak.
