Just a reminder that the Vipers are coming to EMWCC this Thursday from 6pm to 8pm.
We are incredibly lucky to be getting both Charlotte Edwards and Suzie Bates attending!
Suzie Bates is playing for the Southern Vipers for a third consecutive year, she is the New Zealand captain and former Wisden Women’s Cricketer of the Year, is this years Vipers captain.
Former England captain Charlotte Edwards says there has never been a better time to be a female cricketer.
Charlotte has just taken over as Hampshire's director of women's cricket - only the second woman in such a role after Surrey's Ebony Rainford-Brent.
England won last year's World Cup, while this summer's Kia Super League will return for an expanded third year.
There are also plans for a T20 franchise tournament from 2020 to run alongside a proposed new men's event.
"There's no better time to be a female cricketer," she told us.
"What a message to give to these young girls now that they can be a professional cricketer, something I could have only dreamed of when I was growing up."
Since retiring from international cricket in 2016 Edwards has completed her coaching qualifications and captained Southern Vipers to the finals of the first two Kia Super League tournaments - winning the inaugural event in 2016.
Come down to EMWCC this Thursday and join the bowl at a viper competition!!!! and the inflatable catching challenge!
A W10 session will also be running.
