Women's and Girls Club Cricket Update

It has been brilliant to see so much women's and girls club cricket taking place this summer, even with the additional challenges that we are experiencing with Covid-19.

This summer has seen the launch of our first ever Women's and Girls league competitions, with five divisions running as follows:

Women's Hard Ball Premier League

Women's Hard Ball Championship

Women's Soft Ball East Group

Women's Soft Ball West Group

Girls Under 13 Hard Ball League

To have these competitions up and running is a credit to the growth of the women's and girls club game in Wiltshire over recent years, and our thanks go to all of the club volunteers driving the growth of the game.

In the coming days, Wiltshire Cricket's Women's and Girls Development Officer, Sam Dent, will be making contact with clubs regarding plans for rearranging and completing fixtures, as well as plans for finals days.
