The 1982 Hansells Vita Fresh Women's World Cup was an international cricket tournament played in New Zealand from 10 January to 7 February 1982. Hosted by New Zealand for the first time, it was the third edition of the Women's Cricket World Cup, coming four years after the previous 1978 World Cup in India.

The tournament, which featured a triple round-robin, was at the time the longest World Cup in both duration and in the number of matches played. Six teams were originally invited, but the Netherlands were unable to attend and the West Indies withdrew in protest at the 1981 South African rugby tour of New Zealand. Those teams were instead replaced by a composite International XI team.[1] Australia did not lose a single match, winning its second consecutive tournament by defeating England in the final at Lancaster Park, Christchurch. Australia's thirteen matches without defeat were part of a greater series of 24 matches without defeat, extending from 1978 to 1985, which remains an ODI record.[2] The World Cup was marked by its low scoring, with only one team recording more than 250 runs in an innings,[3] and was also notable for featuring two matches that were tied – the first between England and New Zealand, and the second between England and Australia. They were the first ties in international women's cricket.[4] England's Jan Brittin led the tournament in runs, while Australian spinner Lyn Fullston led the tournament in wickets.[5][6]
