Get Involved with Women and Girls Cricket at club level in Lancashire
Your guide to getting started at your local women or girls club.
With the cricket season not too far away read below to find out the best place to head to access female cricket. All of the teams below are designed to be in addition to any other cricket you play. Therefore you can stay with your local club side and play within a female side. We are encouraging players to prioritise women's games over junior cricket as the women's game is different to the 'mixed' game.
NEW for 2014
Under 10 girls softball league will be running for the first time in 2014 with 11 teams taking part. Head to your closest club if you would like to get involved. See attached flyer for contact details.

Plus Clitheroe Cobras and Leigh CC have teams entered in the hardball ECB T20 competition at U13 and U15 level. Burnley and Lowerhouse are looking into a joint venture to move girls cricket on in the area.
Womens Midweek League teams for 2014
For the 2014 season moving forward all County players will be expected to play in a women's club side. This will hopefully increase numbers at clubs and also improve the standard. See the list of teams below and contact details on the attachment.
East Lancs CC
St Helens Borough
Vernon Carus CC
Potential teams in Liverpool, Lancaster, Rossendale and Fylde. We are looking for coaches, players and clubs to host in these places. Please contact Jen Laycock [email protected].
Women's Sunday League
We currently have 3 teams playing Sunday League cricket. Vernon Carus CC and Rochdale play in the Northern Womens League and Astley Bridge Women who have taken on board Bolton Women play in the Cheshire League.
All the above teams are always on the look out for new players, whether you have no experience at all and have been inspired to try something new, played at University years ago and want to start again or are one of our up and coming young cricketers. Clubs are also in need of umpires, scorers, coaches and just general voluneteers to help these teams run. These teams are in addition to an already action packed offer the club puts on and therefore more volunteers are needed.
We have a Lancashire Womens Cricket Development Group that looks after club cricket in Lancashire. Each club should have a representative at this meeting to ensure you are up to date with information, contacts and fixtures.
