Our new summer holiday camps provide young cricketers with the opportunity to develop and enhance their game in a fun and enjoyable environment, covering the essential elements of the modern game to ensure the skills and tactics required for any young players to progress, are clearly conveyed.

The camps are designed and run by Eranga Mendis, former Sri Lankan first class player and ECB level 3 coach who has wealth of experience running camps like this for a over decade and he is ably supported by our Kiwi overseas cricket professional Dan Sharples. We have four different courses running per camp to suit all levels and ages with 20 places available for each course

Courses: 8am – 1pm @ Clubhouse, Poplar Road

Beginners’ course                           

This course is designed for children 5-7 years old. Ideal for complete beginners, children relatively new to the game or anyone who has been to an ALL STARS cricket programme. The children will mainly focus on fun based skills and game activities to help develop hand eye coordination.

Intermediate course

This course is aimed at children aged 8-10 who have a reasonable understanding of the basics of cricket. Players will focus on developing their basic skills and will play regular matches using incredi-balls. They are encouraged to bring a bat, gloves and box.

Advanced course

These courses are ideal for players aged 11-12 who are developing the tactical side of the game. The entire course is match based with juniors expected to play a mix of 2 day test matches, one-day limited overs and 20/20 matches using hard balls. In between the matches there will be the opportunity to use the net facilities to practice and receive smaller group coaching. Full cricket equipment suggested.

13+ course

These courses are designed to give specialist professional coaching for more able cricketers aged between 13-16.  The entire course is match based practice but players have a choice of what format to play. In between the matches net facilities and bowling machines are available to use and players will receive small group coaching covering strategies and approach.
