The newly launched team will host Lindum and Nettleham in a three-team competition at Jubilee Park on Jubilee Sunday (June 5).
“It’s quite an exciting time for the club,” said Woodhall Spa secretary John Luffman.
“This will be the first women’s cricket at Jubilee Park.
“It’s fantastic. Some of the ladies playing are mothers of children who have also been there.
“It’s a fantastic family feel all around.”
The Woodhall Spa women’s team was launched late last year and has gone from strength to strength.
“He was born just after Christmas, the first training session was inside St Hugh’s (school),” Mr Luffman added.
“It started with around 16-17 and those numbers went up to around 24.
“Wednesday night practice night and they played in a tournament and won convincingly in every way.”
This opener was played at Louth and saw Woodhall defeat the hosts and Alford and District.
Former professional tennis player Jade Galpin (née Windley) has swapped her racquet for the bat, impressive as an all-rounder.
His sister Charlie Windley has also joined a team that has a mix of youth and experience in the ranks.
“With their background in tennis, they are both very good and we are delighted that they came,” Mr Luffman said.
“They also bring the other ladies.”
