Cricket Academy

Stuart Welch, Cranleigh School’s Director of Cricket, runs coaching courses during the Easter, Summer and Christmas breaks open to children from 8-13 years old from any school. Each course is tailored to its age group’s requirements and will cover all aspects of the game, including batting, bowling, fielding and wicket-keeping.

Mr Stuart Welch has coached at Lords with the MCC, as well as producing many professional & international players such as Ollie Pope, Stuart Meaker, Michael Burgess, Seren Waters & most recently Tom Lawes.

In good weather the courses take place at Cranleigh’s six outdoor nets; in wet weather, the indoor facilities at the Trevor Abbott Sports Centre or the Indoor Cricket School are used.

We are further delighted to announce that Hannah Jones has joined the coaching team. Miss Hannah Jones is currently the captain of Surrey Women’s cricket team and one of the youngest qualified female coaches in the country. With the expansion of female cricket at grassroot level and the recent success of the Women’s Hundred competition, Hannah’s experience and expertise will be a huge help and inspiration for our young cricketers.
