Holiday Programme Information

We have junior holiday and development programmes on offer during the October 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 programmes are run by our Junior Head Coach Nikheil Bhana with the help of other club coaches and players.

What to Bring

Bring a nice big drink bottle, some snacks and lunch to keep your energy up. A change of clothes too, just in case the sun doesn't always shine!
