Holiday Programme Info

We have junior and youth holiday programmes on offer during the July school holidays

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!



All our programme are run by our Junior Head Coach Nikheil Bhana with the help of other club coaches and players.
