Balls for nets, sub 10
« on: April 22, 2021, 07:43:03 PM »

As in the title, would appreciate any recommendations of where I could source roughly 20 senior sized cricket balls for net practice.

Don't need to be great quality but want to avoid bat breakers, limited to a budget of approx 10 per ball.

If anyone's got a link to balls that fit the bill that would be great, cheers.

Kookaburra County League is a decent ball for the price. Its about 11-12 per ball, but if you find a site offering a newsletter sign-up discount (such as Martin Berrill Sports) then you can knock 10% off that price.

We have used these in the past, when we were short of balls.

I believe a few we even used in inter club games.

Umm, then get them to triple their league ball order 😂

Really is the cheapest way to get decent balls and not pay OTT retail prices

League balls would be more expensive than 5 different options that people have helpfully suggested.

They go under the name of Oxbridge cricket balls.
