Nets Guidelines

  • Warm up before your train!
  • Check nets for damage before starting to bat each time a new batsman enters.
  • Watch the nets at all times do not turn your back including walking back from bowling!
  • Use a bat to retrieve balls in the side netting, or hold side netting back to protect your head when bending down.
  • Batsmen should make sure no spent balls are on the mat before another ball is bowled
  • Do not bowl until the previous bowler is out of the net and the batsman is ready
  • Wear protective equipment when batting in nets.
  • Be aware of others when batting, no unannounced slogging practice!


Please remember:

  • Always do your best to offer quality training to others.
  • Help at the beginning and end of sessions with setting up and putting away equipment, many hands make light work…
