In 2017, Northumberland Cricket Board saw the women's cricket grow through our fantastic softball offer.
Women have told they are looking for Fun, Fast, Safe and Sociable opportunities to play the game. And after hosting 6 softball festivals and Prosecco Cricket taster sessions have seen over 300 new females aged 14 and above get involved in cricket.
Alongside the womens offer we ran our Lady Taverners softball festivals for under 13 girls attracting 7 clubs.
And with the introduction of All Stars Cricket this summer we have seen a rise in the amount of young girls taking part in the game which makes it an exciting future for girls cricket.
The impact has already been noticeable with a new womens indoor set up north of the county & our numbers at girls community sessions have been higher than ever before.
