City of Ely Cricket Club are giving a unique opportunity for females to get involved in sport this summer.
The club are hosting women's cricket sessions at their Paradise Centre base, aiming to introduce those who have never played before into the game.
Budding cricketers will be able to build on their current skillset through fielding, batting and bowling drills, as well as taking part in a friendly game at the end.
Coaches involved in the sessions are Simon, Ben and David Cross, who either play or have played for the club, and Essex Women's representative Millie Oddi, who featured for City of Ely as a youth player.
Sessions have already seen both teenagers and adults taking part, which are free to attend and take place on Wednesdays between 7.30-9pm on the Paradise Centre field, where females aged 11 and over are welcome.
