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?
All coaching sessions and matches are done with a soft ball. Each club gets 4 weeks coaching from a qualified Gloucestershire Cricket Board coach and all teams will enter at least one festival where they will play matches against other clubs of similar experience/ability levels.
What happened in 2018?
In Gloucestershire the number of festivals and teams taking part doubled in 2018 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 2019, however, we’re really excited for their re
turn 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.
