Summer of Soft Ball Cricket – expect something different

If you’re feeling inspired by the ICC women’s world cup this summer, or have been looking for a fun way to get involved in women’s cricket, then this is for you.
Bucks are hosting four women’s soft ball cricket festivals in July and August aimed at women over the age of 14.
These fun, friendly, sociable events are the perfect opportunity for complete beginners to give cricket a try or for women who have played before to enjoy a more relaxed game.
It's free to enter so if you're up for a lively competition where you'll learn new skills alongside your family and friends sign up now on the ECB website or email [email protected] to find out more.

How much does it cost?

It’s completely free to enter our soft ball cricket festivals. You can register online in advance or turn up on the day for free.
Some clubs may charge entrance fees for non-players.
What should I wear and bring along?
You just need to wear comfy sports clothes and trainers and you will receive a free t-shirt on the day.
It is a relaxed and easy-going environment so if you felt like playing in bare feet you can! There will be drinks and food available to buy at the clubs.

Who else will be there and how good will they be?
The festivals are aimed at beginners, women who may have played cricket before but not for a while and women who play other sports but fancy giving cricket a try. There will be a mix of abilities and where possible we’ll aim to get teams of an equal level playing each other.
If you’re completely new and want a few pointers, contact the [email protected] to find out which clubs are running taster sessions leading up to the festivals.

How do I register?
You can sign up as a team of 8, or part team, and get a free soft ball cricket kit from new balance.
You can also sign up as an individual and be added to a team on the day.
To register visit ECB website, click on "Find your nearest festival" and filter by location.
If you prefer you can turn up on the day and be added to a team but you won’t receive any communication in advance about what to expect. With music, stalls, activities for the family, BBQs, prosecco and pimms you can expect something different from this summer of soft ball cricket.
