I’ve never been a great village cricketer, getting invited as much for my prowess drinking beer in the pub afterwards as talent with a bat.
Having spent several hours with a bowling machine at Writtle Cricket Centre though, my skills with a bat are rivalling those with a pint!
Jack Thorogood, Chelmsford
Writtle Cricket Centre is 3 indoor nets with 20m run ups and a specialist cricket (uniturf) surface. Nets which provide even, full length surfaces and good solid areas for run-up and bowling crease are pretty rare full stop, and to get them indoor with excellent lighting can give cricketers that rare thing – good meaningful practice no matter what the weather.
Our aim at WCC is to make our excellent facilities as accessible as possible. In pursuit of this we have upgraded our slightly hit or miss text-or-email-Frank system to the shiny online booking system which is lurking like a toad under a lily pad on the back end of this website. So please give it a try – the designers assure us its the very last word in ease of use and clearness.
