The scheme aims to attract women who have never played before and ex-players who are interested in getting back into cricket.
No experience is necessary and all ages and abilities are welcome.
Festivals are fun, sociable and a great way to get active.
Mums of Juniors and All Stars
Daughters/Sisters 14+ of existing players
Ex-players who want to get back into cricket
Wives, girlfriends & friends of existing players
Female sports teams/players seeking a summer sport
Existing players who don't want to play hard ball
What is the format?
- 8-a-side soft ball matches
- Clubs will play 3 matches per festival against other clubs of similar experience/ability levels
What happened in 2019?
In Gloucestershire the number of festivals and teams taking part doubled in 2019 with 35 teams participating at nine different events. There were 524 different players last season – up 374 from the previous year. Due to Covid, Soft Ball Festivals did not take place in 2020, however, we’re really excited for their return this summer.
Each team taking part will receive a bottle of Ca’Bolani prosecco at every festival they attend thanks to our extended partnership with St Austell Wines.
