The ECB has developed a legacy project to enable schools and clubs to engage in women's cricket and attend a NatWest Women’s international T20 or NatWest Women’s Series match for free this summer.

The ECB Women’s International Legacy project 2010 aims to inspire more girls to want to play cricket and more boys to take an interest in the women and girl’s game.

All schools and clubs in England and Wales are invited to sign up to the project and in doing so will receive a number of benefits, including:

  • Free tickets to a NatWest Women’s international T20 match or a NatWest Women’s Series match
  • a copy of The Cricket Foundation's 'CricEd' curriculum resource pack
  • Opportunities to create a school-to-club link for girls who want to play cricket in a club environment
  • Free entry into the Capture the Cricket competition

ECB head of women’s cricket Clare Connor said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for girls and boys to see England women take on New Zealand women this summer, two of the best teams in the women's game.

"I am sure that the three NatWest International Twenty20 matches and the five NatWest Women's Series one-day internationals will provide exciting live entertainment for the fans.

“I hope the legacy project encourages more clubs and schools to engage in women’s cricket and will inspire more girls to take up the game.”
