4k for a window?  :o

You sure someone isn't on the fiddle and getting double glazing fitted in their house, too?

I did think that seemed high but it is very big, apparently it weighs somewhere round a ton and needs a team of 5 to fit.

Apart from that though, I'm definitely a fan of deweighting from what I've tried so far!

Surely you're not liable for that? Assuming you weren't batting without the nets in place or something daft.

The sports hall should be covered for that by their own insurance. They are renting it to you and unless your club has signed a liability contract I would be paying them a penny.

Nets were in place but they don't go all the way to the ceiling so the windows at the top are exposed if you manage to hit the ball as cleanly as I hit that one. I know it's happened there before so they definitely need to review the nets they have in order to stop it happening again. The fact that the caretaker knew the rough price shows it's happened atleast once before.

I personally thought it would be the hall's insurance that would cover it but they say it is up to either me, or the club's insurance(if they do cover this) to pay.

Sounds like they're trying to avoid another claim having not improved facilities to me, I'm sure their insurance company would have reviewed that if a few of the same claim has been made

Do not pay them a penny. If the facilties aren't fit for purpose they should not be operating atall!

Had my first try of deweighting at nets last night. Definitely felt a big improvement in how hard I was hitting the ball! Sadly towards the end I hit one a little too well and smashed a window at the sports hall we were netting at!  :o

Very cool!

Did you face deliveries swinging away? How did the stance fare against those?

Were you able to hit between cover and point region?

I can't believe that any sports centre would have terms of use that would allow them to charge for accidental damage caused by reasonable use.

Didn't face many pitched up outswingers so hard to say, but certainly I had a lot of fun hitting anything short or wide through cover/point. I found I was able to set myself up nicely to rock onto the back foot and really throw my hands into the ball. Some of the shots through this area sounded nicer than any shot I'd heard before.

I did feel a bit more vulnerable playing defensive shots, lobbing up a couple of potential C&B opportunities but that's always been a bit of a technical weakness for me so it;s something I'll have to see how I get on with once I've worked more on it.

On Instagram, Gio is teaching Coco how to bat in 21 days.
Worth a watch/follow.

Very excited to sign her as our overseas for next season.

Will be an interesting watch and definitely something to fill the time. Thanks for sharing Buzz
