The Old England cricket club are looking to purchase a new bowling machine and update our net area. Included in this is creating a safe seating area, make some repairs to the surrounding wall, and general upkeep of the net area including the run up area and the the sight screen

What we'll deliver:

  • A new bowling machine
  • A new seating area
  • A safer smoother bowlers run up

Why it's a great idea:

A guaranteed net for batsmen if a few players would like to turn up. The bowling machine will make the nets more attractive to come and join in and we can take advantage of some concentrated batting practice in 1 of the nets. The new seating area is long overdue and provide a safe and comfortable area to ‘pad up’ A new sight screen is needed to ensure safe batting conditions also allowing a longer net in the height of summer. Some repairs are also needed to the bowlers run up to ensure safety for all players Repairs to the wall around the seating area will also bring a nice environment to relax in whilst taking a break with a beer!

Steps to get it done:

  • Research into a suitable purchase
