Each Love-Cricket course follows a structured approach, whereby students develop a full range of core cricket skills, including batting, bowling, fielding and wicket keeping, as well as overall tactical appreciation.

“Coaching is thoroughly professional, but always fun and enjoyable, so that not only do students learn sound technique, but develop a real passion for the game”.
