Women's Club History


Monash University Women's Cricket Club (1975-2008)
The MUWCC was formed in 1975/76 at Monash University Clayton as a separate club to Men's Cricket Club, while sharing the facilities on campus.

In season 2002/2003 the Monash University Women's Cricket Club was merged with Hawthorn Ladies Cricket Club along with the Monash University Men's Cricket Club. The club played as the Hawthorn-Monash University Hawks until in season 2007/2008 when the Monash University Gryphons Cricket Club amalgamated with the Hawthorn-Monash University Women's teams, and entered a Victorian Women's Cricket Association Premier Firsts team along with a community team.
