Claire Terblanche - Women's Cricket Coach

The domestic cricket season has begun and the Western Province cricket ladies are ready to go! Joining me on the show today is Western Province Head Coach Claire Terblanche who is also head coach for the Phoenix Cricket Club in Ireland and the Scorchers Super Series head coach. This year, Claire led the Western Province team to their crowning as the 50-over champions, and she also picked up the Coach of the Year award, as well as the CSA Provincial Coach of the Year.

We chat deeply about her time in Ireland working with cricket players from 6 up to 55, and how coaching different age groups encourages creativity from the coach. Discussing the incredible talent of Ireland’s national women’s side, Claire shares her appreciation for the team’s bright future and growth mindset. We get into the new season, what lies ahead and what to expect from the next few games as Western Province take on the Dolphins. How does Claire motivate her players through slumps, what does she think of her awards and the players who have come through her team and onto the national side? In this compelling, open conversation we become acquainted with Claire, our celebrated Western Province women’s cricket coach!

  1. It’s really great to hear Lauren as she chats with various inspiring sports women, chatting about their journey, their successes and their challenges along the way. Lauren is so passionate about sports and you really can feel it when you hear these episodes. She’s been advocating for, and covering, women’s professional sports and I have no doubt that it’s only a matter of time before woman’s professional sports will be equally popular alongside their male counterparts.

      Thank you so much for these words Andrea – together we are working and walking towards equality in sport and beyond, and I have no doubt that we keep inspiring one another through connecting with female athletes, who are just incredible!
