TAKE THE CHALLENGE, BE AT YOUR BEST

Our ambassadors, England cricketers Dom Bess and Heather Knight, have helped develop our programme to give boys and girls the opportunity to develop their cricketing skills through innovative games, coaching and match play.

Selected camps feature a STAR VISIT from Dom Bess or Heather Knight. During a visit they will join in coaching sessions, take part in challenges against the camp, pass on top tips that helped them reach the top, face a grueling Q&A from the children and of course hang around to provide any selfies and autographs!

The Cricket Academy is for all children, whether they are taking their first steps in to cricket, looking to hang out with friends during the summer or push themselves to develop to the next level. Our Academy comes in 3 booking varieties (check your venue for full details of what is available).

Star Visits

Ambassador Heather Knight

HEATHER KNIGHT

A true star of the women’s game, Heather has visited several of our cricket camps over the past 3 years.

She is currently the England women’s captain after taking over from Charlotte Edwards in 2016 and has accumulated over 100 ODI caps. In 2018 Heather was named as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the Year for her part in England’s 2017 World Cup win. Heather has also been recognised by The Queen for her contributions to cricket with an OBE!

Ambassador Dom Bless

DOM BESS

Dom has already given plenty of time to our cricket camps, having visited many of our venues over the past 2 years.

Dom initially made his name with Somerset CCC after his County Championship debut in 2019. His first 2 championship wickets were former England Test Stars Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott. In August 2020, Dom announced that he would be leaving Somerset CCC to join Yorkshire CCC for 2021 and beyond. Dom is a current England International having represented the Test team since 2018 and took his maiden Test five-wicket haul against South Africa in January 2020!

ABatfast

BatFast Cricket Simulators are coming to The Cricket Academy this summer!

Selected TCA venues will feature a full day visit from the team at BatFast to provide children with the experience of a lifetime.

Every child on camp will get the opportunity to face the BatFast simulator. The simulators are controlled with a tablet, which will provide our coaches with the ability to adapt the simulator for every child and set unique challenges and games. Every shot is stored on the BatFast system to provide a wagon wheel to see if you can really hit it 360!
