Academy on lookout for top new talent
Published 14/04/14



THAMES Valley Cricket has opened a new academy for talented young players at Wargrave Cricket Club.

The academy, which is to run alongside an already established academy at Cookham Dean Cricket Club, will cater for youngsters on an invite-only basis after an initial trial.

All players are welcome to attend the free trials, which start on Monday, April 28 at Cookham Dean (4.30pm to 6pm for U7s and U8s and 6pm to 7.30pm for U9s and U13s).

An additional session will be held at Wargrave between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Thursday April 24 for U9s through to U13.

Thames Valley Cricket, a specialist cricket provider, say the idea is to put youngsters through all aspects of the game, testing their technical, tactical, mental and physical abilities.


Those who successfully get through the trials will be invited to join the academy which runs sessions in blocks of eight weeks at a cost of £80 per block.

There is a one-off joining fee of £20 that includes the TVC Academy cricket shirt.

Top-quality coaching is provided by the academies’ English Cricket Board-qualified coaches, including TVC directors Jon Stewart and Neal Robinson.

Stewart, head coach of Reading District U13s, and Robinson, head coach of Berkshire U12s, will work alongside qualified local coaches to ensure the player-to-coach ratios are low in an ideal environment for players to develop their skills.

For more information visit www.thamesvalleycricket.co.uk or contact Jon Stewart on 07951 994397 or Neal Robinson on 07966 642572.
