Our Philosophy

Thompsons Cricket Academy was set up as a training academy, with the intention of providing quality cricket coaching for children aged 5-13 years. Our aim is to develop every child and to give them all the same opportunities in a fun environment, whilst giving them a passion for the sport.


Our focus is not on winning but making sure they are all involved and engaged. We have a great team of coaches, all of our lead coaches are ECB level 2 qualified. We train all year round to keep the continuity of their skills. New to this year we are offering our services as an after school sports clubto local schools.

Teams & Matches

Teams and Matches
Unlike other cricket academies we organise matches against other cricket clubs and schools. These are all friendly matches whereby every child gets the opportunity to try all forms of the game in an unpressurised environment which helps them to develop.

This year we are running the following teams: U8s, U9s, U10s, U11s & U12s.
