Women's Soft Ball League

Following the success of the Women’s Soft Ball Festivals, the GCF launched four district leagues with great success.

What is the format?

The Women’s Soft Ball League Competitions have been placed strategically across the County (Bristol, Cheltenham/Cotswold, Gloucester/Forest of Dean and Stroud) to provide a local cricket playing offer for all, are perfect for players and clubs who have taken part in softball festivals and want to continue to develop their cricket without necessarily signing up to the Foundation’s Hard ball leagues.

Matches are 8-a-side pairs cricket and can be played using a soft or hard ball on agreement by the two teams taking part.
