This year the Women’s Soft Ball Festivals return across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland with the aim to get more women and girls playing cricket this summer.

Whack some balls, bowl some balls, catch some balls. Run about a bit, laugh more than is good for you. Repeat.

Soft Ball Cricket is about getting out and playing: maximum fun, minimum fuss. No pads, no hard ball, no heavy bat, no head-scratching rules. It’s a game for absolutely everybody, no matter your skill level, fitness, or age. Playing time at Festivals is usually about two to four hours, so it never gets boring!

Turn up and we promise you a warm welcome, a free T-shirt and a real festival experience!
