Our ambition for women's and girls' cricket

For women’s and girls’ cricket, our ambition is to provide a clear path for women and girls from age five upwards to have a lifelong engagement and love for the game.

In October 2019 we launched our action plan to transform women’s and girls’ cricket with the fundamental goal of making cricket a gender-balanced sport.

The comprehensive ten-point action plan aims to transform all elements of women’s and girls’ cricket in England and Wales to increase engagement, grow representation and improve opportunities across the game. The plan focuses on five key objectives:

  • Participation: To increase the number of women and girls playing cricket recreationally
  • Pathway: To develop aspiring female cricketers (U11-17) as players and people
  • Performance: To drive the performance of England women’s cricket through a new semi-professional, eight region structure
  • Profile: To elevate the profile of women’s cricket through The Hundred, the England Women’s team and the elite game
  • People: To increase the representation of women across the cricket workforce

Check out the action plan in full.

Opportunities to play

Across September local clubs and community venues are opening their doors to host even more women’s and girls’ cricket activity – this may be anything from a soft-ball game or girls’ only All Stars Cricket session to a traditional women’s cricket match. Contact your local cricket board to hear what is happening near you. Or find out more about our All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket programmes for children aged 5-11.

Supporting Lord's Taverners

The Lord's Taverners run sport and educational programmes for young people. The opportunities created have a lasting impact on the lives of young people with a disability and those living in areas with a higher level of poverty, across the UK and beyond. Professional cricketers across the country are fundraising for the remainder of the 2020 season to support Lord's Taverners through goalgiving. Pledge to donate per run or per wicket for your favourite player. Become a goalgiver today to make a difference and change lives run by run, wicket by wicket.
