No pain, all gain! Softball cricket is a new, fun, fast, social game for all abilities featuring, you guessed it, a soft ball! These festival events are a great way to try something new, meet some new friends and play in a supportive, fun environment.
And you’ll be accompanied by music, bubbles, games and a touch of pampering, all while your friends and family enjoy the food, drink, music and entertainment on offer. What’s not to love!
Building on the success of the phenomenal This Girl Can campaign, the four summer festivals are designed to enable women of all shapes, sizes, abilities and backgrounds to get outside, get active and give cricket a try.
Never played cricket? Not too sure? Here’s what some ladies who gave it a go elsewhere in the UK said about it:
“It’s a really safe environment to have a go”
“I’ve never played before…just in the garden with my kids”
“(The best thing about it was) getting to know people I didn’t know…had so much fun – cheering each other on, encouraging each other – really enjoying it rather than taking it too seriously”
“Just go along, have an open mind to having fun , to having a go and you’ll surprise yourself”
This is cricket but not as you know it. Register your place – either as a team or individual – and then get yourself along there.
The festivals are free to enter and registrations are open now (places are limited). Register now: https://www.ecb.co.uk/play/women-and-girls/womens-softball-cricket-festivals
