The Midlands Cricket Academy.

Opened in Nuneaton 16th January. 

“Cricketing Rivals join forces for the good of the game.” 

A stunning new cricket facility called “BOUNCE” has come to our area. Mr Heath Parnell, Bedworth Cricket Club and local businessman, and Atherstone Town Cricket Club’s Chairman, Mr Simon Wordsworth, have put their “on field” rivalries to one side to bring you “Bounce”.  The centre opened its doors on Saturday 16th January 2010 the superb 4-lane cricket academy has been built to the highest specifications and features Mr Matt Pickering as head coach.  It has been funded by the local charity “The Midland Cricket Foundation” which will also run the centre and use any profits made to develop cricket for the children and clubs in the local area. 

Our aim is not simply to give somewhere for the elite to practice, its primary goal is to grow and develop cricket in the Atherstone, Nuneaton and Bedworth area at all ages and to take the game to deprived and disadvantaged kids and also create opportunities for the disabled to enjoy cricket.

The only special clothing requirement is a pair of trainers; the centre has all the equipment needed. Contact Heath on or drop in at the centre this weekend. (Lane hire can only be booked via telephone 024 7635 0284 - Please do not try and book lanes by emailing)
