Aspiring female cricketers can receive coaching from some of the best women’s players on the planet at an upcoming camp at SGS College in Bristol.
Stars from the recently-formed Kia Women’s Super League team the Western Storm will be on hand to offer advice and tips at the event on August 2 (10.30am-3.30pm).
The camp is for girls aged eight to 13 from experience cricketers to beginners.
The day will feature games, skill activities and a special Western Storm goody bag.
Places are £15 and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Western Storm manager and GCB women and girls officer Lisa Pagett said:

Additional summer camps are also running in Devon and Somerset.

They play Lancashire Lightening in Taunton on July 31 and Southern Vipers on the same ground on August 12th.
They then entertain the Surrey Stars in Bristol on August 7th.
