Meet the England players at our free Women’s Ashes launch event.
Following the announcement that The County Ground, Taunton will stage the opening fixture of the 2015 Women’s Ashes Series, we are delighted to be able to reveal that we will also be holding a special Women’s Ashes launch event on Saturday July 18th.
The event is free of charge and will run from 5pm to 7pm and will give you the chance to meet the England women’s squad and also take part in some cricket activities with them on the County Ground pitch.
The evening will also include a BBQ and Q & A sessions with members of the England women’s squad hosted by the ECB’s Head of Women’s Cricket Clare Connor.
England women begin their 2015 Ashes campaign at Taunton on July 21st and the series will be contested across all three formats of the game – one Kia Women’s Test match, three Royal London One-Day Internationals and three NatWest Twenty20 Internationals. Four points will be up for grabs for the winner of the Test, with two points awarded to each side in the event of a draw, and the ODIs and T20Is will be worth two points each for a win.
England will be hoping to emulate their performances from the first two multi-format Women’s Ashes contests and retain the Women’s Ashes, having won twelve points to four on home soil in 2013 and ten points to eight Down Under at the start of 2014.
Tickets are still available for the Royal London W0men’s Ashes ODI match between England women v Australia women at The County Ground on July 21st. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £1 for Under 19′s. Tickets for this match can be purchased by clicking here or by calling 0845 337 1875.
