Welcome to Bat and Ball Cricket Coaching.

Established in 2006, our main activity is providing after school cricket clubs in Brighton and Hove Primary schools. Our clubs are extremely popular, many are over-subscribed, and we have coached over 6000 children since we started. The clubs are run to include everyone, all abilities, with the emphasis on fun! From absolute beginners to club and county cricketers, our fully qualified and experienced coaches can accommodate you whether you are just looking for something to do after school, or have ambitions to become a pro! We will teach you the basics of sport, from simple hand/eye co-ordination to how to play the perfect cover drive. Many of our children have gained confidence in all sports from our coaching, guidance and support, and many have also gone on to join local clubs and the Sussex CCC youth teams. Learn cricket in a safe, caring and fun environment!

Why Choose Cricket?

Cricket is the second most popular sport in the world, by participation and viewers.
It is a multi-sport sport! No other game has so many different aspects. Not just batting and bowling, but also all the different skills required for fielding. It provides opportunities to cover more general areas- throwing, catching, stopping a ball, and some of the basics- agility, balance and co-ordination. You also learn about tactics, confidence and concentration. The “Chance to Shine” programme, currently running in state primary schools around the country, chose cricket as the sport to deliver for precisely this reason. You don’t have to be good at all of these to be a good player, though!
It’s a team game for the individual! You can enjoy the benefits of participating in a team- friendships, support, team spirit, while at the same time be able to express your individuality- bowler against batter, batter against fielder.
It’s a game for everyone. As a non-contact sport it doesn’t matter how big or small you are. You don’t have to be super fit or strong.
Everyone gets their turn, not just the “sporty” kids.
Cricket at grass roots level places a strong emphasis on fair play. Many children have joined us because they didn’t get on with other sports, but find that they do like cricket.
