The Women's Cricket Association (WCA), hereinafter referred to as "The Association" was the National Governing Body of women's cricket in England, Scotland and Wales from 1926-1998 and was affiliated to the International Women's Cricket Council (IWCC). The purpose of the Association was to provide an organisation for the furtherance of cricket amongst women and girls.
The objects of the Association were to encourage the formation of Cricket Clubs throughout the country and to provide facilities for, and bring together by means of touring teams and one day matches, those women and girls who previously had little opportunity of playing cricket after leaving School and College.
There have been several books published on Women's Cricket, but no single comprehensive record of the development of women's cricket under the auspices of The Association. The creation of this Website is to provide such a record and to pay homage to all those "willing horses" who gave their full commitment not only to playing the game, but also their unending and unpaid efforts to the development and administration until its merger with the ECB in 1998.
From its inception in 1926, "The Association" went on to develop women's cricket in all areas of the game - both on and off the field - for the next 72 years.
