There are 5 women out of 40 among the World Senior Team CC. we have 9 teams. 4 in a 50+ women's team and 1 in a 65+ team.
That is a considerable progress on previous years where we seldom had more than one female player. Last year we did, however, have 9 WAGS.
It was very hard work to get that women's team together. Today England 3 65+ beat the Mongolian women's team 2.5-1.5. Julie Denning won on board 4 for Eng 3. The Mongolian team is the only women's team in the 65+ age group.

Let's put it like this. I don't see that it's something that anyone can do unilaterally and, of course, it's way off topic. But, if managers/organisers of clubs with substantial numbers of junior members and a desire to organise more inter-club events for them care to PM me, I'll see what potential there is to do something.
In case anyone's wondering, no PMs.
