List of women's Test cricket grounds

New Road (pictured above), located in the English city of Worcester, has hosted nine women's Test matches, more than any other venue.
The Exhibition Ground (pictured in 2011), located in the Australian city of Brisbane, hosted the inaugural women's Test in 1934, but is no longer used for cricket.

In total, 73 venues have hosted at least one match of women's Test cricket. Test matches are both the oldest and rarest form of international women's cricket – although the first Test was held in 1934, only 138 Tests have been held in total,[1] compared to over 900 One Day International (ODI) matches and over 300 Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.[2][3] This imbalance is reflected in the number of venues used in those other two forms, which currently stands at 286 for ODIs and at 89 for T20Is.[4][5]

Ten countries have hosted at least one women's Test match, which corresponds to the number of teams that have played at least one Test. However, four of those countries – Ireland, the Netherlands, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka – have hosted only a single match, while two others, Jamaica and South Africa, have hosted only two and eight, respectively. Consequently, the vast majority of Test venues have been located in only four countries – Australia, England, India, and New Zealand. Australian and English venues alone make up over half of the list.[1] Most of the grounds have hosted only a single Test match, with multiple Tests at one venue being the exception rather than the rule. Only three venues have hosted more than five Tests, all located in England – Worcester's New Road ground has hosted nine games, London's Kennington Oval has hosted six, and Scarborough's North Marine Road ground has hosted five.[6]
