Only if you're reinforcing bad habits.

Define bad habits though.
You could argue that Steve Smith is nothing but bad habits, but he became the worlds best batsman by practicing them in the nets for hours upon hours!

If the nets pitch is like say cemented with mat on top, then i would say it does get you bad habits as the ball comes off nicely onto the bat with very predictable bounce while actual turf pitch will be very different in terms of pace and bounce, unpredictability etc. This happened in my case and I was always early into my shots in actual game...So lot of adjustment was needed from nets to middle.

If we can get similar pitch in nets as in game, then it's perfect

If you are bored with it, then you are doing it wrong.

I don't enjoy nets that much, I prefer throwdowns and bowling machine sessions. Except when my son is feeding the balls...

I dont think we can say Steve smith is bad habits, his technique is unconventional but he does basics like playing late/ close to body,watching the ball etc wonderfully..so bad habits means throwing hands, playing far away from body, not showing discipline towards building innings those kind of things..

If a club coach saw someone walking across their stumps and working balls off their stumps through the leg side they'd  have a fit!

Then again,  no club player is likely to have anywhere near the same level of Hand-Eye coordination Smith has. I think this is a classic case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Steve Smith can bat like Steve Smith, it's probably best we don't start coaching youngsters to copy him though! :D

That would surely be a bad coach. A good coach would marvel if after doing that, the ball is still hit with perfect timing and despite doing that, rarely gets out, and recognize it is a special talent..

I personally would say there could be a problem if you spent a whole winter circa 2/3 sessions a week just hitting half volleys on indoor nets that have true bounce and etc but if your working different parts of your game and getting varied feeds, machine, side arm, actual bowling then no not particularly I dont think you can net to much.

Bad habits mean not practicing a game plan. Steve smith is the exact opposite of bad habits - he formulated his game plan and then went about practicing it so he could execute it over and over again.

He is still on release, plays the ball late and has a version of gary Palmer open stance to access the straight balls. No self respecting coach will have issues with that.

For a club player, one example might be backing away to leg to anything straight. I did that for years and would do it in nets all the time, took me a long time on a bowling machine and getting hit quite a few times to stop it.

Depends how you are netting.

Net with a purpose, each session should have a goal and try and set a field and work out which stage of the innings you are batting in.

Throw downs are also very good and tend to be far more accurate than wayward net bowlers.

I bloody hate net bowling lol tho good Boeing is fine

Bowling machine and throw downs much better - like @JTtaylor145 says net with a purpose or goal - a field etc then thats always better.

One thing me and a buddy did last sat was have the self feeder on the bowling and we tried to replicate a match with running between the wickets and having the machine on the longest interval. That was good
