The Women’s London Championship (WLC) takes on an extended form in its second season, Sussex joining Essex, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey.
The counties will play each other once in 50-over format. The schedule lasts from May to July, Essex starting the show with a home fixture against Kent on 1 May. Surrey are the reigning champions.
This tournament is an important addition to the schedule. After the introduction of the eight regional hubs last year, it was crucial to establish the WLC to provide more experience and competition for young talented cricketers.
