Cricket Coaching Mats


New Testimonials  Received since Jan 1st 2010

I love the coaching mat.  It's simply the best batting coaching aid I have ever used

Kevin Brown Gotham CC Notts

The mats are fantastic and I use them for both club indoor and outdoor sessions and for the North Lincolnshire District U12 winter sessions

Paul Cowling Normanby Park CC Lincs,

We have two mats at the club and both get well used. The kids love it and use in game situations to develop match play skills

Owen Newton Blandford CC

We think our two coaching  mats are great and we use them all the time.

John Calcutt  Newdigate CC Surrey

In the 3 seasons I have had one of your mats I can only say I have been delighted with it, and have drilled techniques with cricketers from age 9 up to 49., yes It certainly does the trick.

Mark Caldwell Ashcott and Shapwick cricket club, Somerset

The coaching mat is great - and is a fantastic aid for the indoor nets.

Phil Frost Gilmortin CC Leics

“ We have now been using the cricket coaching mats within our normal club colts evening, our winter indoor training & winter schools programme for over a year & have found an instant improvement to the development of our young players game techniques, so good we have bought some more!!” Peter Cook, Ickenham Cricket Club

Ian Douglas     Youth coach [level II]  Huish and Langport C.C.  Somerset writes


“When I first got the cricket coaching mats from you the club had one U13's team and I was planning to start an U11 and U14's team during that season. I felt that the coaching mats would be of particular benefit to the then new U11's and so it proved.

This season, I will be running two brand new squads of U11's, two U13's teams, U14's, U15's, a girls U15's team and a new U16's side. The mats will be busy!

I found the mats to be particularly useful with the younger age group and with the girls. It is far more useful to have a youngster use a mat where he/she can groove a skill rather than throw downs in a net.

Traditional net practice is useless unless the bowlers are skilled and disciplined enough to put the ball consistently in the right areas and until batters have the shot skills and the instincts to play them. Your coaching mats provide a perfect calm environment to teach the skill but retain the satisfaction for the kids of successfully being able to hit a ball into a target area. I have also used them with some adults to groove technical shot improvements and they work just as well!

Your mats are one of the cornerstones around which I build many of my coaching sessions.“
