1-2-1 cricket coaching (suggestions)
« on: August 29, 2019, 12:12:36 AM »

So essentially I'm looking for 1 on 1 coaching for my batting and was wondering if anyone has had and can recommend any companies or ppl in particular that they have made use of.

Thanks for reading!

Serious Cricket in Basingstoke if youre near is very good. Good booking system, great facilities and the coaching is excellent.

There's a chap in Bath, Jon Solly, I can highly recommend who does sessions out of Hampset CC and Beechen Cliff School for 35/ hour. Much better to practice against a competent sidearm user/ bowler who knows how to handle a bat themselves, than just line up balls on a bowling machine IMO. Also good if you can see the same person semi-regularly IMO as they get to know you better and know what kind of coaching works for you and where your strengths/ weaknesses lie.

Bath as a cricket club also has indoor facilities and coaching though it is hard to get in as an "outsider".

DFCA also run coaching in Bristol but I have no experience there as they only had limited sessions per week whenever I've enquired.

There are also loads of people on the forum around Brizzle, usually with semi-regular forum nets through the Winter together

I was about to ask for people in Oxfordshire, but Gary is incredibly expensive no?

Give Pat @ GP cricket a bell, they have an Instagram with an email on it. rates are very good and he coaches out of Marshfield CC which is only 25 mins or so away from Bristol. Was involved with Gloucester at some point as a keeper batsman so has been exposed to high level coaching and translates it very well into his coaching.

Gary is extortionate and I actually didn't find his coaching to be that effective. To each your own though.

Lots of people on here have been very happy with Gary but there's plenty of videos on YouTube showing his style and what he advocates. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gary+palmer+cricket

He preaches a very open stance approach with both shoulders and feet pointing down the wicket, I personally found it made me very early on pretty much everything as my bottom side took over, there's a reason the textbook says cricket is a side on game and almost all players that have been successful bat in a side on fashion
