An increased interest in women's cricket has led Dunmow Cricket Club to develop their Women and Girls programme.
At their first Women's and Girl's Soft Ball Festival, nine teams took part.
Players of all ages got involved, including members of High Roding Women’s team, watched by family members.
There was an afternoon of fun cricket, food and a fitness session led by Kylie Robinson of CM6 Fitness.
The event was part of the club's 125 year anniversary celebrations, delayed from 2020 because of the pandemic.
