Kent Cricket is delighted to announce that it has extended its partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University for another three years as the Club’s Women’s Cricket Headline Partner.
One of the longest standing partnerships in women’s cricket, Canterbury Christ Church University has featured on the front of Kent Women playing shirts for the past decade, including the Horses’ first ever coloured playing kit in 2015.
Since then, Canterbury Christ Church has continued its enthusiastic support of women’s cricket in Kent, overseeing multiple County Championship, Women’s London Championship & T20 titles for Kent Women.
The University’s mission is to pursue excellence in education and research; inspired by its Church of England foundation, it is passionate about transforming individuals, creating knowledge and enriching communities to build sustainable futures.
The University will also become the title sponsor of the newly-formed Kent Women’s Premier League featuring multiple recreational clubs across the county, as well as providing Sports Scholarship opportunities for potential Kent cricketers of the future, male or female.
Kent Cricket’s Director of Partnerships, Andy Griffiths, said: “We’re delighted to extend our partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University for another three years.
“Their support has played a big part in the success of Kent Women at both a first-team and pathway level for over a decade – something that we are both very proud of.
“We look forward to continuing our work with the University to keep our women’s talent pathway up there with the best in the country.”
Canterbury Christ Church University’s Senior Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research, Enterprise and Business Development), Professor Mike Weed, said: “We are delighted to continue our commitment to Kent Women, one of the longest-standing within UK women’s team sports, with the announcement of a new three-year partnership.
“As the most successful sides in both the Women’s County Championship and Women’s Twenty20 Cup we are proud to support them and to work together to inspire the next generation of women in sport.”
