For more in-depth teaching, you can also book one-on-one sessions. These coaching sessions cost £20 per hour. However, availability will depend on trainers’ commitments.
The nets are typically available for the coaches to run coaching sessions at the following times during the outdoor season:
Mondays: 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Tuesdays: 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Wednesdays: 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM

You don’t need any special kit for training. So you can wear comfortable clothes appropriate to play sports in, such as t-shirt, shorts or joggers/tracksuit bottoms, and hoodies. You can also wear cricket whites (shirt and trousers), although shorts or tracksuit bottoms are an acceptable alternative to cricket trousers
All equipment can be provided. However, they do not provide abdominal guards for boys and these must be supplied yourselves.
Junior Players may be asked to join Senior Training on Wednesdays at 6.30 PM. This is by invitation only and occurs when they are considered ready by the coaches to have potential (but not before U13, unless they are of County standard).
