2021 will be an exciting year for women and girls’ cricket in Somerset as we launch three programmes designed to support clubs who want to start a women or girls’ section.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has launched its action plan to transform women’s and girls’ cricket with the fundamental goal of making cricket a gender-balanced sport.  Transforming women’s and girls’ cricket is one of six priorities outlined within the ECB’s ‘Inspiring Generations’ strategy for 2020-2024.

To align with Inspiring Generations we aim to increase the number of women and girls’ playing cricket recreationally.  To help us achieve this goal we are excited to launch three bespoke programmes that will support clubs to;

  1. Start an U11 girls’ section  – Dynamos Plus
  2. Start a women’s soft ball section – Give it Go
  3. Start a women’s hard ball section  – Grow the Game

If you want to apply for one of the above programmes, please note the closing date for application is the 29th January.

If you want to find out further information on developing a women or girls’ section in your club, as well information on our support programmes, why not attend our Starting a Women and Girls’ Section webinar on Tuesday 12th January 7pm – 8pm.  To book your placer, register using this link.  Booking Link for W&G Club Webinar
