Girls Cricket

The Warwickshire Cricket Foundation girls softball cricket festivals provide a great offer to those who are newer to cricket and want to start playing matches with minimal equipment. These games are 8-a-side 8 over games where everyone bats, bowls and fields. These events have a large emphasis on providing a participation offer rather than winning and losing. During the winter we run Indoor Leagues, and in summer we run Softball Festivals at ages U11 and U13, alongside Hard Ball Leagues at U13 and U15. 

Our softball and hardball leagues are suited to those clubs with enough girls to regularly enter into weekly fixtures with other clubs of a similar standard. This again provides a further participation offer for girls with some experience of playing cricket and those who want a more competitive offer and wish to make the transition to hard ball cricket. 

In 2023 we ran the first Girls Development Centre Programme. Click here to find out more about how it went, and how you can get involved.

Women’s Cricket

Similar to the girls softball festivals, these games are 8-a-side 8 over games where everyone bats, bowls and fields. A newer offer for 2024 is our Hundred Softball Competition, with clubs across the county compete in Hundred format style softball cricket matches with a finals day held to decide the overall winners. 

For those seeking a smooth transition to regular competitive hardball cricket, the West Midlands Counties League provides clubs who have been playing hardball cricket an opportunity to play longer formats of cricket without jumping to the West Midlands Women’s Cricket League, which often has a high number of county and experienced cricket players. The Foundation partners with the West Midlands Women’s Cricket League, who provide a 3-tiered league with 40/45 over league cricket for more experienced and competitive cricketers.
