Marling School and Winterbourne International Academy were the big winners at the Gloucestershire Chance to Compete finals, claiming five out of the six trophies.
Winterbourne triumphed in both the girls Under 13 and 15 tournaments while Marling secured a hat-trick of titles with victories in the Under 13 soft ball and Under 13 and Under 15 hard ball competitions.
Bradley Stoke Community School also tasted success, winning the Under 15 final.
The competitions are part of the Chance to Shine charity’s mission to get more children playing cricket in state schools.
2016 was the third year of tournaments run by the Gloucestershire Cricket Board (GCB), with the soft ball boys competitions both being staged for the first time.
A record 37 teams from 20 different schools entered the different cups, with matches held at Kingsholm, Brislington and Frocester cricket clubs.
In addition to the cricket, food was laid on for competing teams in order to promote the sociable side of the game.
GCB projects and programmes manager Chris Munden said: “It is fantastic to see the Chance to Compete competitions growing each year. Providing opportunities for children to play competitive matches is crucial in getting them to develop a passion for the game.
“The two new soft ball tournaments proved particularly successful and are great for attracting a different audience to cricket who might be put off by playing hard ball matches.”
