Cricket is a popular option for students at Royal Russell. All players are given a grounding in the basics of fielding, bowling and batting and the opportunity to experience small sided games. With the aim of also feeding the teams.
We have an extensive cricket fixtures programme in the Summer term, every Saturday and play friendlies and cup matches in our games afternoons, with an additional training session per week and a fielding/ technique clinic at lunchtimes.
We have set up academies at under 13 and under 15 level to feed through to our first XI, which has also just restarted. We will benefit from strength and conditioning programmes personalised for individual players and undertaken in our new suite. Tours are run to destinations in the Caribbean and southern hemisphere.
