Statement: BBC Elite British Sportswomen’s Survey 2020

The BBC Elite British Sportswomen’s Survey 2020 is a rich source of insight for all involved in women’s sport. Cricket Scotland will analyse the results carefully and consider what action we can take as a National Governing Body that helps and supports our current and aspiring female athletes.

Sue Strachan, President Elect of Cricket Scotland, said: “We are incredibly proud that our female cricketers have spoken out about the issues that affect them and in particular menstruation, sexism and racism, all of which are difficult subjects about which to speak publicly.

“There is little doubt that we have work to do to enable female athletes to feel more comfortable and well supported to perform at their best whilst maintaining their optimum physical and mental health.”

Gus Mackay, Chief Executive, said: “We at Cricket Scotland are absolutely committed to progress work in all of the issues highlighted by this important research going forwards. As we progress this work, we aim to welcome without discrimination any person who wishes to be a part of the cricket community in Scotland.”
