Women and Girls' Cricket

Women and Girls' Cricket in Scotland is growing fast! There are options to play competitive and non-competitive cricket at a network of clubs throughout Scotland.

Be part of a team, be part of the action

Women's Premier League

The Women's Premier League is Scotland's top women's club competition played in a 30 over format 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 T20 with four teams attending the Finals Day in August.

Challenger League – East, West, Central & North

The non-competitive Challenger Leagues are run regionally, 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 Challenger League as a series of festivals where all teams attend, others play home and away fixtures.

For more information, contact your Regional Development Officer.

Beyond Boundaries Wee Bash

Cricket Scotland’s popular women’s indoor tournaments run from October to April indoors 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.

In the summer, The Beyond Boundaries Wee Bash moves outdoors so soft ball cricketers can enjoy playing all year round! More information about Beyond Boundaries can be found here:

Girls Leagues (hard ball)

Inspired by the inaugural u19 Women's World Cup held in January 2023 in South Africa, we are pleased to announce the first u14 Girls League (hard ball) in Edinburgh with six clubs competing. Matches are played on Sunday mornings or weeknights. We are working hard to establish hard ball playing opportunities for girls in all regions. Contact your Regional Development Officer for more information.


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!

Girls' Cricket in Schools

More and more schools across Scotland are offering girls-only cricket. The Schools Week of Cricket now includes a Girls Primary tournament, a Girls S1-3 Soft Ball tournament and a Girls T20 Finals Day (hard ball).

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 your Regional Development Officer.

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.
