Wiltshire Youth Cricket League

The Wiltshire Youth Cricket League is a member of Wiltshire Cricket Limited and provides the main youth league structure for clubs with junior sections across the county. The Wiltshire Youth League is an excellently run league offering leagues at the following age groups:

  • Boys Under 9s (festivals only)
  • Boys Under 11s (20 over Cricket)
  • Boys Under 11s Pairs Cricket
  • Boys Under 13s (35 over Cricket)
  • Boys Under 13 (20 over Cricket)
  • Boys Under 15s (45 over Cricket)
  • Boys Under 15s (20 over Cricket
  • ECB Natwest Under 19 T20 competition

The Wiltshire Youth League works closely with Wiltshire Cricket Limited to ensure that its fixture programme dovetails with the Wiltshire Cricket district fixtures and also to ensure that the cricket provided by the Wiltshire Youth League is of a high standard. One of the key successes of the Wiltshire Youth League has been in offering the longer format of the game at under 13 and 15 level where other leagues just offer 20 over Cricket. This has helped prepare Wiltshire juniors for the rigours of County Cricket and has helped create a hugely successful and competitive Wiltshire Youth League.
