East Anglia/ Herts/Essex nets?
« on: January 27, 2020, 08:07:51 PM »

Just starting a new thread about this with correct topic...

Possible CBF nets one Saturday/Sunday in Feb/March.

I suggest either Fenner's in Cambridge or HECC in Sawbridgeworth. Of the two I would recommend HECC as it has parking, is much bigger, has an SM bat shop and cafe. But may be fully booked already. Prices seem to be 55/ hour plus vat for 3 lanes at Fenner's, or 27 per hour per lane at HECC.

I know @blindowl and @SOULMAN1012  might be interested. A few more would be good as I don't really bowl, just deliver sidearm throw downs (some might say I don't bat either, but that's another story...)

I'll get some possible dates /times if I can over next few days. Let us know if you are interested. HECC is quite easy to reach from North London too.

I'd be up for this. Ideally for me in March rather than Feb, and in Cambridge as Sawbrideworth is a fair trek from Norwich!

I might rather park-n-ride to cambridge than go all the way to sawbridgeworth from newmarket if its on a weekend. However its not so bad from work so depends on times and what others want to do really.

Where roughly are you based @SOULMAN1012

Wherever we go it might be nice to have a bowling machine in one lane unless there are at least a few keen bowlers

@blindowl in in Suffolk, I live near Needham market and work all over Sudbury but mainly out of Sudbury, my work takes me to Cambridge and Newmarket so thats why an evening works ok.

Im happy to turn my arm over with some medium bowling but a machine I think is a good idea if possible

I'll get some possible dates then and come back shortly. An evening or weekend could work in Cambridge for me. They do have a bowling machine but one of us has to be a level 2 coach to sign it out, and I'm not...

Some of those last sessions are a bit long - are you thinking of us each getting 50 overs in bat  :D

9 hours batting shouldn't be too much for real forum members 🙂

As an FYI our net was 3 hours last Saturday and we all found the last hour a bit much!

And we were all proper athletes in that net ;)

We'll go for 2-3 hours depending on how many players we have. Some decent pubs nearby e.g.the Free Press or Cambridge Blue for anyone that wants food /drink afterwards.

If we only get a few takers I'll invite in a few decent players from locally, one of which will have level 2 quals to sign out the bowling machine.
