Cricket Hall

The Centre is justifiably proud of the Jack Hobbs Cricket Hall, which has two nets and a specially designed playing surface. Uni-Turf has an anti-reflection embossed surface which ensures a positive true bounce plus the ability to take spin. It has already been installed at most of the major indoor cricket schools, including those at Lords, Headingley, The Oval, and the Rose Bowl (Hampshire), as well as at overseas cricket facilities in South Africa, Bangladesh, Pakistan and India.

Why not make use one of our 'Bola' machines, which are capable of bowling spin and swing, as well as deliveries of up to 90 mph. Please note: There will be a £10 refundable deposit on bowling machine hire - with a £3 surcharge for each ball not returned, Also, Juniors must be supervised and safety equipment is mandatory for use with the bowling machines

We are also very popular with local cricket clubs, especially after Christmas, so if you belong to a club or organisation and need somewhere to prepare your team for the outdoor season, please email Dan West on
