This project was funded on 30 May 2020!

The State-of-the-Art cricket training facilities will improve the performance of all sections of the club, seniors, women, juniors, visually impaired and is ideal for wheelchair users. There are four net lanes all to ECB standard. The artificial training area provides a full length run up for bowlers. The training area can be separated from the nets with pull across netting, so throw downs can take place in the nets and fielding drills on the artificial surface. The whole project is enclosed by a high security fence which will hopefully prevent vandalism . There will be power sockets both both outside lanes to use a bowling machine. The cost of this facility is £73,000 and the club has raised nearly half of this amount.

  • State of the art nets

Why it's a great idea:
