Wiltshire Cricket is proud to be a member of the Westerm Storm region for Women's and Girls Cricket.
To guarantee the prosperity of the Women and Girl’s game country-wide, eight regional hosts from across the UK were established in 2019 and given the responsibility of ensuring its future. In the South West and Wales, Somerset CCC, Gloucestershire CCC and Glamorgan CCC joined forces to keep the Western Storm name alive whilst also leading the way in collaborative working for the greater benefit of cricket, recreation and participation across our vast region.
As a result, Western Storm was formally registered as a NewCo with company directors from the three First-Class Counties and was the name given to the new accessible and inclusive player pathway which will be underpinned by a thriving recreational game that welcomes a broad and representative playing population.
A key element in the success of this initiative is the strong working relationship between the three First Class Counties and an expert advisory panel comprising of Cricket Wales and the Cricket Boards of Devon, Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire.
