The Finnish women win the first FinEst Cup "The inaugural meeting of Estonian and Finnish Women's team in Tallinn on a chilly late winter Saturday was a resounding success. Two highly competitive indoor matches were played, the first was used as a warm-up to make sure all the players understood the rules, and the second was for the prestigious FinEst Trophy; the match rules were set loosely according to Australian-style indoor cricket, which differs in some aspects from the indoor cricket played in Europe, but made the games quick and intense. The title of the Cup, The FinEst Women's Trophy, tributes the location of both countries - Finland and Estonia; this first trophy event took place in Tallinn, Estonia, which lies across the Gulf of Finland from the Finnish capital Helsinki in Northern Europe."

11 March 2012... "Crack of dawn". Helsinki Western Port. This is a historic moment. The first-ever international cricket trip for Finnish Girls and Women as a team is about to start. The destination is Tallinn, Estonia - across the Gulf of Finland in Northern Europe. The team comprised of four 15yo girls (Katariina, Amanda, Marika and Manna), who had a few years of cricket behind them - and four more mature female cricketers (Johanna, Ronja, Tarja and Anna), also mostly very new to the game, having been involved for a year or so. Travelling with us was our coach and manager, the ‘tigermama’ Maija, the umpire of the tour Jari, who had travelled overnight from Tampere to be there, and the support team: Ted, Jaana, Curt, and Anu.
