The Lady Taverners indoor schools and outdoor clubs girls’ cricket competitions provided 86,616 sporting chances to nearly 22,000 girls in 2016. These opportunities to play were provided at both informal and competitive levels with a progression pathway to local clubs and development programmes.

Almost half of the current England women’s squad have developed through the competitions, including Heather Knight, Anya Shrubsole and Sarah Taylor.

2018 dates to be announced later this year.
