HER GAME TOO CRICKET PARTNERS WITH ESSEX COUNTY CRICKET CLUB 

 

Her Game Too Cricket are pleased to announce that we are joining forces with Essex County Cricket Club, the latest First-Class County to pledge their support for the campaign. 


Our alliance with Essex CCC marks a momentous step for Her Game Too Cricket, as we continue working with clubs, organisations and individuals across the game to fight against sexism and misogyny, making cricket a safer and more welcoming space for all.  


In partnering with Her Game Too Cricket, the county are affirming their commitment towards promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion within cricket and taking a stance against sexism/misogyny within the club and wider community. 


An official statement from Essex club reads: “Within the partnership, the Club is committed to working with the campaign to achieve the mutual aims of increasing women and girls’ participation and championing female role models. 


The partnership will also extend to the local community, with an aim of tying it in to the work already being done to promote women’s safety and encourage the growth of women’s recreational cricket. 


John Stephenson, Chief Executive at Essex Cricket, said: "We are very proud as a club to partner with a trailblazing organisation like Her Game Too. 


The women’s game in England has grown exponentially over the last few years, and we remain committed to ensuring that continues as we move forward. 


This partnership underlines our continued dedication to promoting, growing, and championing women and girls’ cricket, and we are excited about the future with it in place.”
