An 11 a side, 30 overs, competitive hardball competition played on Sundays in May and June.
This is the National Knock out competition open to all clubs. The format is 11 a side hardball, T20 with four teams attending the Finals Day in September to play semi-finals and finals.
Each of the four regions run their own non-competitive Development League which is aimed at giving younger and less experienced players a chance to play hardball cricket in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. The format is 8 a side T20 and can be played on a weeknight or weekend, whatever suits best. Some regions run the Development League as a series of festivals where all teams attend, others play home and away fixtures.
Cricket Scotland’s newly re-branded popular women’s indoor tournaments run November-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 workouts (High Intensity Interval Training). It is the perfect way for women and girls to get fit and get an introduction to cricket at the same time. Sessions last a maximum of 45 minutes, which leaves plenty of time for a chat and refreshment afterwards!
Launched in 2017 by the ECB for the Women’s World Cup, the social Women’s Soft Ball Cricket Festivals are now also on offer in ten locations in Scotland. The festivals are all about fun, friends and family so get a team of 6 to 8 together and join the fun!
