Cricket Sets for Kids

Bats, balls, bails and stumps – everything juniors need to enjoy a fun game of cricket! The garden is the perfect venue for juniors to learn the fundamentals of the sport. Make the most of the garden and create some great memories with a junior cricket set

Our garden cricket set is perfect for cricket games and spontaneous practice sessions in the garden, backyard or at the beach.

With all the equipment you need to introduce children to the sport of cricket, the set is available in 3 sizes.

Cricket Rebound Nets

All top level fielders have two things in common – razor-sharp reflexes and safe hands. With a RapidFire cricket rebounder, your child can efficiently build up hours of catching and throwing practice at home.  The angle of our versatile rebounders can be adjusted to simulate the challenge of real fielding scenarios.

By adding a RapidFire rebound net to their training regime, your junior fielders will be a match for the toughest of shots. The RapidFire Mega X Cricket Rebounder is available in 2 sizes, and is manufactured with an ultra-durable steel frame and a weatherproof net. A great tool for junior cricketers to practice their catching and under arm pick-up skills, the rebounder can be adjusted to provide 2 different angles. 

Our RF Cricket Rebounders are available in 3 sizes, and are double sided, allowing a range of cricket training drills for one or more players. The netting on each side of the rebounder provides a different bounce.  The knotted net on one side provides an unpredictable rebound for reaction training drills, whilst the opposite smooth side provides a more predictable bounce. Ideally for home, school and club use, the rebounder has a quick-release adjustable base and folds away for storage and portability. 

Cricket Fielding Nets

Sold in pairs, our 6ft-wide  pop-up cricket fielding nets, are ideal for target practice. Ideal for use with cricket stumps, the simple pop-up design helps to make the training drills much more efficient. Lightweight & portable, the nets can be set up in seconds. Ideal for indoor and outdoor use, the lightweight net can be transported using the included carry bag. 

Cricket Ball Stop Netting

If you are looking to practice cricket, football or any other ball sport in your garden or backyard, then a ball stop net can be a great investment. Prevent errant shots and throws from damaging or bypassing the fence, with a Stop That Ball™ – Socketed or Pop-Up Ball Stop Net System. The Pop-Up ball stop system is ideal for back gardens and can be assembled in under 2-minutes. With an included carry bag, it’s a great addition for any garden cricket training session or spontaneous cricket match.

Made from ultra-tough and durable 600D polyester, bound with 420D Oxford fabric, the premium net provides an ultra-sturdy boundary. The base is made with powder-coated steel, to provide a robust and effective ball-stop net for sports including cricket. 

If you are looking for a semi-permanent cricket ball stop net, then the socketed Stop That Ball™ system with removable steel ground sockets is ideal.
