Cricket Indoor Net Practice with Bowling Machine

Went for two hours of indoor cricket batting practice with bowling machine at the new facility in Derby. They have a deal currently 2 hours for £20 which is brilliant. The Bowling machine they had can bowl up to 99mph. I tried up to 70mph today. Optional outswinging and inswinging too. Didn’t try the spin options the machine supports.

Overall a good workout too.. Not as much as badminton though.

Play Straight Cricket Derby is just off pentagon island and they have four lanes . 3 of which can be used with a bowling machine and the fourth one with bowling machine and/ or with a bowler.

There are automatic feeders as well. You can turn up for net practice just by yourself if you wish.
