1-2-1 Coaching in Somerset/South west
« on: October 12, 2016, 01:19:28 PM »

Any of my fellow cider drinkers know of any good 1-2-1 cricket coaching in Somerset? I had 5/6 sessions last year with an ex pro and really enjoyed them and was a massive help for my game I doubled my league average from the previous season!  It was always pretty toughto squeeze a session in with him as he was so busy but this year is looking twice as hard!?

Looking to do two a month From December until the season starts if anyone knows of anyone please give me a shout!?

Great thread, I be interested in this too as I south west based

Google suggests coaching at the County ground (not a huge number of dates possible) and at Taunton (bit far from me) may be possible and I think I caught something about 1-2-1 coaching at Bath CC... I'll make some enquiries and post up if I find out more

Second that, I'd be very keen for a regular session anywhere near Bath/Trowbridge area (moving to Trowbridge on Saturday!)

Can recommend Damian Forder (dfca.co.uk I think), I've had a few sessions with him at the Glos ground in Bristol if that's near to you, mainly based there but I think he might do other places too?

Where abouts are you based Dave?

I've had coaching with Tom Wright, Ian Blackwell and Ben Wellington at the county ground in Taunton and they were all really good.

I'm based locally to Taunton so the county ground seems the obvious choice just quite like the informal nature of my other coaching sessions and as always with this great game things are expensive so looking for the best option before I commit to anything. A friend that works at the County ground recommend Rich Askew or Andrew Skidmore. I might book a session with Each of them and choose my favourite from there. I'll let you know how it all goes!

I used play against Trull when I played for Mark nice club with a good attitude few good games against them. I'm now at Burnham on sea CC loved Mark as a club poorly run and no ambition or opportunity to train and improve, Burnham are much better nets twice a week two games a weekend if you want etc and excellant  facilities and one of the fastest tracks in the league! Can't complain !

I played against mark a few times. Old trailer as a pavilion. Thought they got bequeathed a load of money and they bought their own ground.

They did but from what I heard they spent unwisely bought a ground withoutchecking if they could get legal access to ground. So now they have ground with nothing on it and no way of legally driving on to it! Shame when I was there we were playing a decent standad of cricket for the size of the village.

I'd definitely recommend Tom Wright as a 1-2-1 coach, I've been coached by and played with him for many years and is a top class coach as well as a player! I can pass his phone number onto anyone if needed... :)

Revisiting a bit of an old thread but I've been Googling for more South West facilities and it seems there are two lanes in Warminster @ 15 an hour per lane. No idea on coaching or machine hire costs but it could be worth a look, especially since it seems quite quiet on the booking system
