This Girl Can Campaign

For older news stories please visit the news archive page

Aligning with Sport England’s award winning “This Girl Can” campaign, the ECB is encouraging cricket clubs up and down the country to be a part of a nationwide push to inspire more women (14+) to get into the game this summer and beyond!

Women’s cricket is constantly growing and increasing in popularity thanks largely to the success of the England women’s team on the field. However, research has shown that the “traditional cricket offer”, consisting of longer 40-50 over versions of the game, played in whites and with a hard ball is not always appealing to women who are new to the game.

The Island is offing girls and women opportunities to get involved in cricket with coaching sessions running at Ryde School for girls aged 12+ on a Wednesday from 5-6.30pm, 1st session free and then £2.

Ladies coaching happens on a Friday evening at Newclose CCG from 6.30-8pm. Free of charge. All abilities welcome.
