In a brand new ECB-led initiative, Women's Soft Ball Cricket Festivals will be run across the country to get more women playing cricket.

It's fast, fun & friendly and coming to venue near you this summer!

You can sign up as a team or an individual and every team that signs up will get a free kit bag that includes bats, stumps and balls.

Every participant gets a free T-shirt and there will be food, drink and fun activities for both players and their families.

If you would like a free taster session at your club contact Women's Sport Maker Emma Cowdrill 07388 947862
