Welcome back: We’re Re-opening!

MCC is very pleased to be re-opening the Lord’s Indoor Cricket Centre for customers on Monday 17 August, following our closure due to COVID-19.

The Centre will run limited services to allow for physical distancing, with smaller class sizes for our children’s coaching courses, and only alternate nets in use. Unfortunately, at present Kids Parties, Group Matches and Indoor Cricket Centre Packages are not available but we hope to offer these services soon.

In addition, we have introduced a range of measures aimed at keeping our customers and staff safe. These include temperature checks on arrival, regular sanitisation breaks and an enhanced cleaning regime throughout the day and overnight. 

Coaching and net hire

We will also be open for 1-to-1 coaching, as well as normal net hire for groups of up to five players. Bowling machines can be hired with a coach, including our Merlyn spin bowling machine and the Trueman fast bowling machine; both with LED technology for a more realistic experience. 

Batting analysis will be available through PitchVision but distancing guidelines mean that we won’t be able to operate Hawk-eye for bowling analysis from our Performance Analysis Suite quite yet.

Details of services available and how to book can be found here.

In order to be able to reopen we have followed all of the required Government guidelines and advice and we ask that all visitors to the Centre follow our guidance on staying safe and protecting those around you.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Lord’s Indoor Cricket Centre.

Performance Analysis

The Performance Analysis Suite at the Lord's Indoor Cricket Centre hosts the world’s leading cricket coaching technologies, including PitchVision & Hawk-Eye.

Cricketers of all age groups can make use of these technologies to hone and develop their skills - whether is a batting analysis session using PitchVision or bowling analysis through the world famous Hawk-Eye system.

Open to the public, Lord's is only place in the world where budding, amateur or novice cricketers can access Hawk-Eye as a cricket training tool, the same technology used by county and international stars.

The HawkEye software can accurately pinpoint the speed, line and length of each delivery bowled. At the end of an Analysis Suite session budding cricketers can take away a free video of their performance. They can view a graphical HawkEye breakdown of their statistics in the Analysis Suite - and for just £15 take the full stats package home complete with full Hawk-Eye animations.

- See how fast you bowl
- Watch each delivery back in 'Virtual Reality'
- Measure how far you are turning the ball through spin, seam or swing
​- View 'beehive' formations marking where each delivery meets the batsman.

All mapped onto the 'Virtual Lord's'  to show your deliveries on the famous Home of Cricket.

Pitch Vision allows coaches to offer instant in-net analysis of a player's performance.

See instant replays of your performance on a laptop and gain more from your coaching session at Lord's.

All video is then available to view, upon registration, from the PitchVision website.

Pitch Vision's batting analysis tool is the most instant form of video feedback in the net itself.

Umpires can also make use of the technology to sharpen their skills on LBW decisions and learn more about the technology in general.
