Make sure you are ready for the cricket season this winter

The winter may be in full swing, but it won’t be long before the days get longer and we start to prepare for the brighter months again. That means it'll soon be time for the cricket season!

Whether you're aiming to be the next Alastair Cook or you just like a leisurely game of cricket on a Saturday afternoon, you'll want to get off to a good start. Here are our tips to help you do just that:

1. Fitness

Maintain a good level of fitness throughout the off-season. Gentle exercises will keep your body loose through the winter months. Go on runs or walks to keep the aerobic exercises strong; that way your body won’t go into shock when you begin the harder workloads of the cricket season.

2. Practice indoors

Cricket might be an outdoor sport, but there are plenty of facilities where you can practice indoors these days. Whether you are a batsman or a bowler you can get in the cricket nets and work on your skills to improve or just keep the body active and get the brain into repetition mode. 

3. Improve your equipment

Check out the different types of equipment available. Bats these days are much more high-tech than they used to be. Make sure your bat suits you both in terms of size and weight. Make sure you are wearing the right boots and pads and if you are getting new gear to go into the season with, ensure you have tried it out before the season starts. The worst time to find out you have the wrong equipment is after the season has already started!

Practising is essential for maintaining your game. Here at Sport Netting we have the very best equipment for you to enjoy either as an individual or as part of a team.
