Women’s Softball Cricket League Underway

Thursday 5th May 2022

The early May Bank Holiday saw the new Kent Women’s Softball Cricket League get underway in fine style.

The Kent WSCF League has relaunched in 2022, due to a growing demand for more competitive women’s softball cricket and a fantastic growth in the number of clubs taking on the format.

This year we have 13 women’s teams participating in three regional league groups, with each team hosting a round robin festival, to determine which clubs will be invited to the Kent Cricket County Finals in September.

Cobham Cricket Club kicked us off this week, playing host to Farningham, Luddesdowne and High Halstow who make up the North League Group, the latter club coming out on top.

Helen Fagg, Kent’s Community Cricket Manager for female recreational cricket, commented “it is fantastic to see how quickly the softball cricket format has grown for women in the county and that we can now look to run competitive leagues as club squads and sections become more established. We are looking forward to plenty more WSCF festivals taking place across the summer and to seeing the results of such dedicated club volunteers who are making the fun happen!”

Soft Ball Cricket is all about getting out and playing with 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. If your club are interesting in starting women’s softball cricket, please contact Helen Fagg
