WOMEN AND GIRLS
Over the last 15 years we have seen the Women & Girls game evolve and grow, nationally as well as in Sussex, with more Women and girls playing at grassroots level than ever before. This is due to schools taking up cricket in curriculum sessions, both secondary and primary school level, as well as more opportunities for girls to play cricket within their schools as Sussex run several Indoor and outdoor competitions and leagues for schools.
Also, the number of clubs with a either a Women or girls’ section, or even both, has risen considerably over the last 15 years, which is giving more females opportunities to be involved in Cricket. The standard and numbers now playing at County level has increased for the 2019, which has resulted in Sussex introducing two new teams to their age group squads, to further help and develop players getting to the top level.
