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.

Details for the course are shown below:

Courses will consist of 2 hours 30 minutes coaching per day. On 17th-18th August, 7-10 years session will take place 10:00-12:30pm, and 11-13 years session will take place 13:00-15:30pm.

This course will take place predominantly in Cranleigh School’s 1st XI Jubilee Nets, Pitch & Pavilion. If we are affected by bad weather, we will use the Trevor Abbott Sports Centre and the Indoor Cricket Bubble here at Cranleigh School.
