Cricket Kenya is setting up ladies cricket leagues in both Nakuru and Nairobi regions in 2016. The leagues are planned to run concurrently beginning the month of July through to August.

Nakuru’s league will feature six teams while the Nairobi championship will comprise of four sides. The 20-over competition will take place on Saturdays at different venues in both counties.

This forms part of the drive to expand women’s domestic calendar to be able to bring into line with the men’s game that currently enjoys up to a minimum nine months of cricket in a calendar year.

CK has and will continue to support the involvement of ladies cricket by way of providing such opportunities which are an integral part of developing the women’s game. CK will seek the support of commercial partners to assist ladies participation in the sport of cricket beyond its sole direct involvement by ensuring more opportunities are created for women.
