The England and Wales Cricket Board launch ‘Live it live’
Women’s International Legacy Project 2010
ECB Media Release
The England and Wales Cricket Board has developed a legacy project, to enable schools and clubs to engage in women's cricket and attend England women International matches for free this summer.
The ECB ‘Live it live’ Women’s International Legacy project 2010, aims to inspire more girls to want to play cricket and more boys to take an interest in the women and girl’s game.
All schools and clubs in England & Wales are invited to sign up to the project and in doing so will receive a number of benefits including; free tickets to an England women’s International match, a ‘CricEd’ curriculum resource pack, opportunities to create a school to club link for girls who want to play cricket in a club environment and free entry into the Capture the Cricket competition.
Clare Connor, ECB Head of Women’s Cricket said: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for girls and boys to see England women take on New Zealand women this summer, two of the best teams in the women's game. I am sure that the three Twenty20 matches and the five One Day Internationals will provide exciting live entertainment for the fans.
I hope the legacy project encourages more clubs and schools to engage in women’s cricket and will inspire more girls to take up the game.’
Schools and clubs in England and Wales can sign up to the project at www.ecb.co.uk/womenslegacy
