BCEW Launch Women's Development Programme

12th May 2015

BCEW Women's Development Programme

After receiving funding from the Primary Club recently, we have been able to start our female development programme, with the first session taking place on 9th May at Reading University.

It was attended by 17 players from across the country as far apart as Durham and Somerset and, with the weather staying fine, everyone enjoyed the experience.

The event went on for five hours and included a fitness session, skills groups and finished with pairs cricket, all organised by experienced ECB and BCEW coaches.

There was much promise shown in all sight categories and the future looks good for the formation of an international women's squad.

More regional and national women's cricket events will take place throughout the summer. For details please contact BCEW development director John Garbett via email ( or phone (07972 360928).
