Serious Cricket announced as Home Counties Women's Cricket League Sponsor
February 13, 2019
Serious Cricket are delighted to announce that we have become the official sponsor to the Home Counties Women’s Cricket League.
With Women’s Cricket continuing to grow in the UK, the Home Counties Women’s League will go into its debut year in 2019 with the vision of creating a new Women’s club competition structure for Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire & Oxfordshire.
The focus is to ensure that every club within the area has an opportunity to play the format and standard of cricket they want as locally as possible, with plans to grow the league organically year on year with the expected rise of women’s cricket participation.
As part of the sponsorship, all teams within the Serious Cricket Home Counties Women’s League (SCHCWL) will be able to take advantage of a 15% discount on their coloured clothing and kit requirements for the season as well as a 10% discount will be available to individual members on any personal or club cricket equipment that is needed by way of a league promo code.

“As the UK’s Number One Cricket Team Clothing provider, we are very proud to be able to support and sponsor the Home Counties Women’s League. This league sponsorship further cements our position as one of the major supporters of the Women’s game in the Home Counties area and we are excited to be involved as headline sponsor of this new league".
