Pre-Season Nets into March

By Karl Quinney

Half the sessions gone, still plenty to go

A reminder that pre-season nets for our senior/adult teams and Under 13 and Under 15 teams will be continuing to the end of February and right throughout March.

Willoughby are once again using the indoor nets and sports hall at Bilton School Sports Centre (Lawford Lane in Rugby, CV22 7JT) for all their pre-season work-outs.

Willoughby’s senior/adult section players are there on Tuesday evenings from 7.00 to 8.30pm.

That is followed on Saturday afternoons set aside for the club’s Under 15s training from 1.00 to 2.00pm, followed by the Under 13s from 2.00 to 3.00pm

Sessions for both junior/youth and seniors cost £3.00 per person.

With four lanes of cricket nets and convenient time slots at our disposal, there is never a better opportunity to get in tune and shape for the new season ahead; especially with a wealth of cricket that will be on offer, and where senior cricket is concerned our first steps into the Northamptonshire Cricket League.

The 2019 campaign is getting ever closer and not far that away; so don't get left behind and take advantage of getting some practice in while you can. Plus it is a great opportunity to get together with everyone and build the banter ahead of a busy summer ahead.

New players at all level always welcome. Either come along to any of the sessions, or contact any of the persons below:-

  • Karl (Press Officer re: adult/senior cricket) on 07775 883102, or the following persons regarding junior and youth cricket:
