As girls cricket has continued to grow, this year we have seen the very first season of the new girls leagues for softball and hardball cricket for under 11s to under 15s across the county. This now creates a clear pathway for girls from All Stars through to both the softball and hardball women's league. All information around the leagues can be found here

It is still important to support the girls playing outside the league structure with events for new players, events for those who would like to improve and events that are simply cricket for the fun of it! All of these events are detailed below: 

 

HAVE A GO HARDBALL

As we move into the 2022 season, there maybe girls at your club who are just starting their first hardball season. They may have done some training over the winter, but have not had the opportunity to get outside yet and play on a grass wicket or in the outdoor nets. These early hardball camps are FREE. Run by our community coaches it is an ideal chance for girls to develop their confidence outdoors before the season really gets going.

UNDER 11 FESTIVALS

These festivals are organised so that newly created under 11 teams have meaningful opportuntities to play. The festivals encourage all to come and play, so if you are not able to get a team together, you can still enter and we will put you into teams when you arrive. 

These festivals are not intended for the teams that are entered into the leagues, but league players can come and support newer players to develop.

SUMMER AND TRANSITION CAMPS

During the summer term, you may find that new girls arrive at your club and also that some girls would like to progress to hardball cricket. Your club may run summer camps, but it may not be feasible for you to just run a girls only camp. During the summer holidays, we will continue to offer summer camps for girls which will build on skills and interests they have gained during the season and give them the confidence to continue cricket at the next level.

GIRL'S CRICKET WEEK

During 2020 we ran girl's competitions, as due to Covid there was a limited amount of cricket. These competitions have now become a regular feature of the cricketing calendar. For the 2022 season we have packed all the comptition days into one week! 

These competittions include the hardball Super 8s competitions run by Devon Cricket, as well as the softball comeptitions which are sponsored by the Lady Taverners Organisation.

CRICKET FOR THE FUN OF IT!

In 2021 we ended the season with this immensely fun event based on the 'Colour Me Run' events. The team work together to collect 'colours' of cricket events from a bingo board. After the game they then enter the 'Colour Zone' where they collect their powder colours. Great fun was had by all - coaches and girls alike and we are looking forward to repeating the event this year!

A fantastic day full of colour and fun and an ideal way to end the season for the clubs!
