Girls Softball Festivals

A great way to enjoy cricket without the concerns of a hard-ball. 

As more and more girls start their cricket journey through All Stars Cricket, many clubs have planned or are starting to plan a ‘girl only’ exit route or pathway.  For some clubs this has become a ‘girl only’ Dynamo offer and for others it’s a typical under 11 girls offer.  As more and more clubs develop these sections, this year we are offering three Countywide Under 11 soft ball girls festivals where clubs can enter as a team or girls can register individually and teams will be made on the day!    The purpose of these festivals is to create, fun, safe and a positive experience for girls to ‘compete’ against other girls.  

The format of the festival is a team of six , playing countdown cricket.  In a team of six, players will bat in pairs for two overs.  Each player will bowl an over (six balls in an over, with the exception of the last over which will be 10 balls) and each innings will last for 35 balls.    If players are ‘out’ during their two overs, they remain ‘in’, but the fielding side scores 5 runs that are added to their batting total.
