The 50-over competition replaced the Women’s County Championship for the home counties after the ECB dissolved the competition at the end of the 2019 season, and has been won by Surrey Women (2020) and Kent Women (2021) in its burgeoning history to-date.

After the visit of Surrey, the Horses will make the trip to Falmer to take on Sussex on Saturday 30 July, before an away match at Middlesex on Tuesday 16 August, with their final match of the round robin league-formatted tournament again taking place at The County Ground, Beckenham against Essex on Friday 26 August.

With founding members of Kent, Middlesex, Surrey and Essex for the 2020 edition of the tournament, Sussex joined the competition for the 2021 season, which Kent won. The Horses secured the 2021 title using a squad of 19 players – 17 of which were homegrown talents.

Kent Women Head Coach, Dave Hathrill, said: “As a group, we’re really excited to defend our 50-over title.

“Whilst matchday squads may be fluent with player availability uncertain, the whole group have shown that they contend for silverware after our T20 campaign that so nearly bought us yet more success.

“I have the utmost confidence in our young, talented and hungry wider squad to make the step up when they are required to, and I hope that as many supporters as possible come and see us in action in the WLC.”

*The venue for Middlesex will be updated via the Club’s fixtures page once it is confirmed.
