Our Women's section continues to grow after a breakout year in 2021. Our journey started with Mum's of our youth players becoming interested in playing a sport they have watched so frequently over the years at the Ship. Many a cold winter session on the astro turf at Tockington Manor School took place before snowballing into the beast it is today. We now have dozens of Women players on our books and have a Western Storm player, Mollie Robbins, as our head coach!
We've attracted Women of varying ages to play and/or train with the club and are always looking for new members. The vast majority of our players came to Thornbury with no playing experience whatsoever, showing just how quickly we look to develop your skills. The sky is really the limit for our Women's section and who knows where it'll end up, but you'll definitely want to be a part of it!

We have two Softball teams in the Bristol leagues and are entering a beginners hardball league in 2022! Our team in the Bristol League won their division in 2021, which was our first season in a competitive division! The club were also able to send a team to play in a national tournament at Lord's, representing the whole of Gloucestershire! The Women train on Tuesday evening's, where they are coached by head coach & current professional player, Mollie Robbins! We also train on Saturday morning's.

Following on from the successful 2021 summer season, momentum continued to grow heading into the 2021/22 winter season. Due to the interest, TCC entered 2 evenly balanced teams into Bristol League 1 & Bristol League 2, playing matches at Winterbourne Academy and John Cabot Academy. We won both leagues!
