Cricket for Girls is delighted to announce that Heather Knight OBE, England Women’s World Cup winning captain, has accepted an invitation to be our first brand ambassador. Heather will attend Cricket for Girls events up and down the country linking in with the our many masterclasses and women in sport events taking place throughout the Summer.
Heather recently spoke of her new role:
“Cricket for Girls is doing a fantastic job in getting girls engaged with cricket at grassroots level. They are ensuring there is widespread opportunity in the UK for girls to play our brilliant game in fun and exciting environments and this is so important for girls who are new to the sport. I am delighted to be involved with Cricket for Girls and look forward to inspiring girls up and down the country!”
Watch out for details of our first ‘Women in Sport’ event – an announcement will be made soon. This will be a fantastic opportunity for young girls to meet their sporting heroes and discover what it takes to be the best they can be in whatever they decide to do. Our female sports stars will talk about the challenges they faced throughout their career and the highs and lows of reaching their goals. Be ready to ask your own questions in a Q and A with our stars.
