This summer the ECB are running 180 Soft Ball Cricket Festivals across England and Wales to introduce a fresh, new, social form of the game for women of all abilities.
PLUS attend any Softball Cricket event over the summer in the West Midlands and recieve a hughe discount to our Double Header day! Scroll down for more information.
What to Expect at a Festival
Whack some balls, bowl some balls, catch some balls. Run about a bit, laugh more than is good for you. Repeat.
Softball Cricket is about getting out and playing: maximum fun, minimum fuss. No pads, no hard ball, no heavy bat, no head-scratching rules. It’s a game for absolutely everybody, no matter your skill level, fitness, or age. Playing time at Festivals is usually about two to four hours, so it never gets boring! Turn up and we promise you a warm welcome, a free T-shirt, free coaching, music, and food: basically all the good things about a festival with none of the grunge.
So why not bring friends, kids, and family, down to your local Festival and make a day of it? Oh, and it’s no problem if you want to sign up on your own. We’ll find a team for you and introduce you to all your new team mates.
All you have to do is find your festival and register. It only takes a minute, and we’ll get right back to you to confirm your place. If you think you know other women or girls who might be interested, please just share the link.
