Women's cricket is growing rapidly in Dorset. Last summer there were lots of festivals at local clubs. Players ranged from girls aged 12 to a grandmother over 70 who proceeded to whack the ball for six !
The festivals are Softball Cricket and this year some clubs have also entered a softball league too. Festivals are held at local clubs on Sundays and aim to have a fun, friendly , family atmosphere. The rules of Softball cricket are different to hardball cricket and they allow players to learn the skills of cricket whilst playing games. For example, if you are bowled out you would not stop batting but just lose runs from the team total.
This survey is designed to see if we can attract more women and girls to the game because local clubs are looking for more female members.
Please read further and if appropriate leave your details, so that we can link you to a local cricket club.
