The UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, joined the United Kingdom Armed Forces Ladies Cricket Team on the final day of their Kenyan tour, during which they have been raising awareness of the Bowling Out Domestic Violence initiative.

Teaming up with Cricket Kenya, the delegation of 18 female cricketers had travelled from the UK to raise awareness of gender based violence through cricket.

During the tour, the UK Armed Forces team took part in various cricket matches across Nairobi and Nakuru against the national women’s cricket team and visited local schools and communities where they ran a number of coaching sessions.

The British cricketers were sponsored by Mabway, an award winning employer of ex-military veterans and other specialists. They deliver managed services to the government and industry, including exercise support, training and security services.

This tour culminated with the community #BowlingOutDV festival which involved past players and high profile names from the world of Kenyan cricket.
