Grafton Holiday Programme

We have the following holiday programmes on offer at Grafton

Purpose

The holiday programme is for boys and girls and is a great way for our superstar cricketers to get in some quality practice sessions before the start of the new season. The sessions are designed in a way that having fun is the highest priority, but with an awesome opportunity to learn new batting, bowling and fielding skills. These sessions are open to all in this age group - the more the merrier!

Coaches

The programme is run by Junior Head Coach Nikheil Bhana with the help of other top club coaches who are also members of the Grafton Premier Men's squad.
