1. Exercises and Games for the Nets

The ‘Nets’ are an ideal place to train your technique and have lots of chances to have lots of goes without having to go fetch the ball from the other side of the field or over the garden fence!

Here are a few points to make the most of your training session.

Ensure that you are bowling/batting from the correct length. They have been marked out for you

• U9 (softball) – 15 yards
• U9/U10/U11 (hardball) – 17 yards
• U12 – 18 yards
• U13 – 19 yards
• U14/U15 (Girls) – 20 yards
• U14 (Boys) – 21 yards
• U15/U17 (Boys) & U17 (Girls) – 22 yards

  • Stretch and warm up properly
  • Plan a few ideas bowling, batting and fielding prior to your slot.
  • Take a few tennis balls and start with bobble feeds

When Batting use cones or markers to act as targets and scoring
e.g. 10pts blue, 20pts yellow, 5 bonus points for an excellent cut or pull shot.

When Bowling at a batsman set your own scoring system
e.g. 10pts for a play and miss, 10pts for hitting the pads and 20pts for a wicket
