New Cricket Nets

Never been a better time to play Cricket at Gwyn Evans

August 31 2017

The Sports Hall is looking fab with the inclusion of our brand new Cricket nets and associated fittings.

What have we done?

  • The old torn net has been taken down and replaced with a new two lane net.
  • The old broken clips have been replaced with new to ensure that the net hangs evenly.
  • The torn storage envelope has been replaced with a new one.

You said the nets were in a terrible state with more that half of the hanging clips broken and only one lane in a usable condition because the other wasn't adequately supported. We replaced the cricket nets and associated fittings.

Before & After

Book a session.

Cricket is growing in popularity and it is said that the only rule that hasn't changed in cricket over the years is the length of the pitch. We know that's not true; the rule that it always rains on training day has stayed the same too!

So take you training session indoors this winter with our indoor cricket lanes. We have two lanes complete with mats. The hall is set-up and taken down by a member of staff for your convenience.

Make sure that you wear appropriate footwear and clothing when taking part in any sport. If you are unsure what to wear please contact 01978 269540 for advice.
