If you want to improve cricketers you need practice regularly and monitor your performance.
That’s been the challenge of Millfield School and Mark Garaway the school’s Director of Cricket Coaching: even for a top English independent school, that has produced some fine first class players Simon Jones, Craig Kieswetter, Ben Hollioake and David Graveney.
The facilities are excellent, but there are still challenges to further boost the boy’s performances at the school.
First, despite a lot of indoor facilities being available, they are all multi-purpose and heavily used for lots of sports. Second, there was no way to objectively track improvements.
The solution was the unique cricket “bubble”
The bubble changed outdoor artificial nets into an indoor centre. Kept afloat by two airlocks the roof protects players from the elements and allows for high temperature training ideal for fitness and players going to play on the sub-continent.
Cricketers at the school can now get in quality deliberate practice year round.
