I would definitely be up for this. I'm in Coventry but have to say the facilities at forward drive are top class. Prefer them to bounce nuneaton in my opinion.

Where's that mate? And who do you play for?

I might be able to pop down if it's at Forward Drive or elsewhere in Brum.

Hey @alexhilly1492 the forward drive academy is in Birmingham near the digbeth/sparkbrook area if I can remember. The facilities are quite new and it's a nice place
. It's also a bit cheaper than bounce. I know the guy there, farukh, and have to say he's a great guy and an awesome coach. Finally make use of my countless bats.

Haven't played for a club for 2 years now. Just coming back from knee surgery so will be looking for a club soon.

Shouldn't you boys be supporting forum sponsors and talking to @Uzi Sports  Asad  about his net facility on the middle of Birmingham?

A party of us southern Softies even managed to pile up there in our Bentleys and have a 2 hour net and be forced to buy things from his superb shop.

Unless it's been burnt down, surely you can give him a try?

I'm going to beat @smilley792 to the punch as the miserable northerner and say "how is travelling from one side of the city to the other too far, when I was a lad I had to walk 37 miles there and 37 miles back to my local cricket club and it was uphill both ways!!!"

Ahh fair enough then. It is a superb facility with Bovril and Bournville Dark on tap for all you Midlanders!

Online bullying. Wonderful. I thought better of this forum... Why don't we think about what we are saying before bashing away at the keyboard?

As most of the previous discussions centred around Coventry and it wasn't mentioned where 'Forward Drive' was I assumed it was all East Midlands based. I'm not just on one side of the city, I'm a decent journey west of Birmingham like Coventry is to the East.
