Inappropriate and Unwelcome behaviour towards Young Female Participants in Cricket
Over the last few weeks the Safeguarding Team has received reports of sexual harassment of female players, either on the pitch through inappropriate language or ‘sledging’, or off the pitch via unsolicited text and social media contact.
Please could you remind clubs, via their welfare officers, that such behaviour is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. No young women should receive such attention through taking part in cricket.
The following should be brought to the attention of Club Welfare Officers and clubs in your County:
Thank you for your assistance in making it clear that such behaviour has no place in our sport.
With best wishes,
England and Wales Cricket Board
