Growing the women’s game in Somerset

The women’s game in Somerset has grown over the last few years and the Somerset Cricket Foundation now has a variety of different offers, from softball cricket festivals for those new to cricket, indoor and softball competitions, right through to the hardball women’s leagues.

Softball festivals

The festivals are partly aimed at women who haven’t played cricket before and bring teams together for a day full of fun-packed social cricket which includes friendly matches, camaraderie, food and music.

Women’s hardball cricket

This year Somerset Cricket Foundation will be hosting a Hardball League for women.
