Women's Premier League
The Women's Premier League is a competitive hardball competition played on Sundays in May and June.
Beyond Boundaries Women's Scottish Cup
This is the national knock-out competition open to all clubs in Scotland. The format is hardball T20 with four teams attending the Finals Day, scheduled (cricket season depending due to coronavirus) in August 2020.
Club Development Series – East, West, Central & North
Each of the four regions run their own non-competitive Development Series, in either a league or festival format, which is aimed at giving younger and less experienced players a chance to transition to hardball cricket using flexible formats in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. The format is 8-a-side and can be played on a weeknight or weekend, whatever suits best! Some regions run the Development Series as a series of festivals where all teams attend, others play home and away fixtures.

The Wee Bash
Cricket Scotland’s re-branded popular women's indoor tournaments run November to April at different venues in the country. Clubs, universities and secondary schools take part in these fun, social soft ball events. The format is 6-a-side, 5-over innings and it is seen as a great opportunity to catch up with cricket-friends over the winter.
CricHIIT is a fast and fun combination of basic cricket skills and the hugely popular HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts. It is the perfect way for women and girls to get fit and get an introduction to cricket at the same time. Sessions are flexible and can last anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the level of CricHIIT, which leaves plenty of time for a chat and refreshment afterwards!
Women's Soft Ball Festivals
Women's soft ball cricket is on offer in ten locations across Scotland. This format is all about fun, friends and family so get a team of 6 to 8 together and join the fun! Contact Rosy Ryan (Women and Girls Development Manager) for more information.
Girls' Cricket in Schools
More and more schools across Scotland are offering girls-only cricket. The Schools Week of Cricket has a day dedicated to girls-only cricket, with tournaments catering for primary school girls and secondary school girls, with the option of soft ball and hardball teams.
If you are interested in offering girls-only cricket at your school, or, if you are a club wishing to support your local school with a girls team, get in touch with our Women and Girls Development Manager, Rosy Ryan.
All Stars and Dynamos Cricket
All Stars Cricket provides a fantastic first experience for all children aged 5-8 years old where they’re guaranteed 8 weeks of jam-packed fun, activity and skills development. The programme is designed to introduce children to the sport, teaching them new skills, helping them make new friends and have a great time doing so.
Dynamos Cricket provides a fantastic next step for all those graduating from All Stars Cricket and the perfect introduction for all 8-11 year-olds new to the sport! Research shows that at this age, most girls would prefer to play in a girls-only environment. The Dynamos programme is a great way to start a girls only section at your club.
Complementing junior cricket, Dynamos provides children with a more social offer focused on developing fundamental movement skills and applying them in an exciting game of countdown cricket.
Calling all Clubs: Become a Women & Girls' HUB
A Women & Girls’ HUB is a club which will provide a minimum of 3 participation programmes aimed at women and girls. The purpose of the HUB is to attract more females to the game and to maximise participation and development opportunities with dedicated support from Cricket Scotland Development Officers.
