Indoor cricket at BOUNCE has opened.

Bounce opened its doors on Saturday 16th January 2010. The aim of the centre is to provide an excellent cricket training facility and to make quality coaching accessible to the local community.

The Midland Cricket Foundation (Bounce) was formed in January 2010 by three local cricketers - Heath Parnell (Bedworth CC), Simon Wordsworth (Atherstone CC) and Matt Pickering (Cov & NW CC), who are now the Trustees of the charity.
Bounce is an indoor cricket practice facility with four lanes and a viewing balcony.
The purpose of Bounce is to provide the local community with a safe environment, which local cricket clubs or individuals can hire to practice cricket.
The idea was only made possible when a Midland business/ sportsman Gary Beresford kindly donated £60k worth of equipment/netting to the cricket charity. Sadly Gary is no longer with us after losing his battle with cancer.
With Gary’s help the local area have something to be proud of and for the past 4 years, hundreds of kids have been introduced to cricket because of this great facility. Many adults have also been able to improve their own game, hence improving the standard of cricket in the local area.
The centre has run very smoothly for the past four years, offering part time jobs to young students and to local cricket coaches.
However, twelve months ago the centre was hit with a hammer blow when the landlord put the rent up by 45%. The Trustees have worked very hard to keep the centre open and have managed to secure some funding to help pay for the increase in rent. However, the centre now needs to invest in some equipment and will need extra funding to pay for this.

The centre needs to purchase 4 mats to protect the current playing surface and at the same time this will improve the pace and 'bounce' of the playing surface.
These four mats will cost a total of £2500.
A fund raising weekend has been set up for 4th and 5th October, when hopefully the local cricketers will help out with a charity car wash. In the mean time we would be most grateful if any local businesses would be willing to help out by donating towards the fund.
If you would like any further information regarding the centre’s activities/ the fund raising event or would like to make a donation, please see details below.

Thank you for your support.
