The Lady Taverners indoor schools and outdoor clubs girls’ cricket competitions provide opportunities for girls to get into cricket. 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.
