Women and Girls’

In Suffolk we cater for female cricketers of all ages and abilities, and currently boast over 25 clubs offering opportunities for women and girls. This has grown significantly with the number of clubs involved in women and girls cricket more than doubling over the past decade.


Women and girls’ clubs in Suffolk offer players the chance to progress and develop their cricket, with players spanning the entire pathway from club softball to Sunrisers regional cricket. Suffolk leagues and events allow all players to play and enjoy club cricket.


These include:

  • Women’s East Anglian Premier League (40 overs)
  • Two Counties Women’s Performance (20 overs)
  • Two Counties Women’s Development (20 overs)
  • ECB Women’s Outdoor Softball Cricket Festivals
  • ECB Women’s Indoor Softball Cricket Festivals
  • Suffolk Women’s Softball League (8-a-side pairs)
  • Sunrisers Girls Cricket Festival
  • Suffolk Hundred Cricket Festival


Suffolk Cricket also engages with over 400 girls across numerous primary and secondary schools through our engagement with Chance to Shine, Suffolk Girls Secondary School Programme, and ECB competitions.

These include:

  • ECB Kwik Cricket Competitions
  • ECB Lady Taverners Indoor Tournaments (U13 Girls and U15 Girls; local rounds and finals day)
  • Chance to Shine Chance to Compete Summer Festivals (local rounds and finals day)
