The Indoor Cricket Centre has eight indoor nets, with 'SuperGrasse' playing surface. Nets can be booked for practice all year round.

All nets have shock absorbers at the bowling crease to protect the bowlers from injury, in additon, the fast bowling lanes have shock absorbers from the start of the runup.

The Indoor Cricket Centre has a 'breathable' design, making it ideal to allow sunlight (but no hard shadows due to special sails in the roof) and natural air flowing throughout the building - ideal for practice all year round!
