Over the last 10 years we have seen the Women and Girls game evolve and grow, nationally as well as in Sussex, with more women and girls playing at grassroots level than ever before, and the standard at County level has improved considerably.
Sussex is one of the leading Counties in the Women & Girls game from our grassroots programmes through to our County system.
