Far South Coast cricketing ladies have dominated selections for the upcoming T20 Women's Bash.
Hosted by Cricket ACT, four squads have been named as the Southern Pride, Eastern Fever, Northern Frenzy and Western Frenzy.
The coast have secured a lion's share of places with Jade Allen, Sharna Mitchell, Amy Wells, Jessie Mudaliar and Talia Moreton-Stewart all named in the Northern Frenzy.
Yasmin Welsford and Madelyne Czubara have been selected for the Eastern Fever squad.
Tyjana Blacka, Janet King and Kaylee Trenerry will all line up for Southern Pride and, lastly, Jemma Pollock will contest for the Western Frenzy.
The teams include some massive names of the sport including some current Australian A players and Bemboka's Sharna Mitchell said coast players will relish the opportunity.
"I'm pretty excited to play at this level with some pretty big names in women's cricket," she said. "It's definitely an experience of a lifetime and could be a foot in the door for all the talent around here."
Mitchell went on to congratulate everyone selected, particularly her Frenzy team-mate Jade who was named vice-captain of the team.
Tathra's Tyjana Blacka said it was awesome for the coast to be recognised based on their recent T20 rep appearances and the maiden women's season.
"It's unreal to be a part of and witness the growth in women's cricket in the last few years," Blacka said. "To have so much local talent selected shows our association that women can really hold their own for a local comp."
She said it was great to see some of the newcomers to the sport already showing class and getting a call up for this opportunity.
"It's really exciting for the sport, and our local area, I'm thrilled and humbled to play with and against so much experience and talent," she said.
Kaylee plays for Bermagui and has represented the Far South Coast on many occasions. She was also recently selected to play on the South Coast Combined High School team, one of only two girls from the Far South coast do so.
Wolumla's Janet King regularly plays in Canberra and said the T20 Bash was an excellent stepping stone for locals to further their cricketing opportunities.
"This is a great chance for women who want to continue with cricket and see what it takes to become a professional cricketer," Janet said.
"Being able to play with and against top level cricketers will compel the others to perform to their best and go above and beyond."
She said the chance to face off against others from the Far South Coast added to the appeal of the draw.
"Playing against the other FSC girls will be a lot of fun with lots of banter on the field - it will be good to play against them instead of with them," she said.
The opening round of the Female T20 Bash will feature a double header at Belconnen's Kippax Oval in Canberra, with play also on December 21, January 11 and finals on January 17 at Phillip Oval..
