November Autumn Newsletter

Dear Parents,

Hope you are all well and are looking forward to the ashes starting at the end of this month.

Plenty going on in our Winter programme leading up to Christmas. We have a fast bowling Masterclass with Surrey CCC’s Jade Dernbach and Stuart Barnes coming up on Monday 11th December. Our Christmas courses dates are now available, with two courses before Christmas and one in January. Catch the last of our open courses, book in for an adult open session or join our first golf day. We also have a link to our blog from the Sri Lanka Tour. You will see from the pictures and videos that it was a brilliant experience for the players. I think the parents enjoyed it a little too much at times!!


Jade Dernbach & Stuart Barnes Fast Bowling Masterclass

Monday 11th December
6-8pm
Sevenoaks School, Sennocke Centre
All fast/medium pace bowlers aged 10-17 welcome
£30
Limited to 60 places

Jade Dernbach has taken 70 wickets for England in 24 ODI’s and 34 T20’s and now plays a leading role for Surrey CCC in all forms of the game. He is famous for his slower ball variations which had batters struggling when he broke on the international scene. Stuart Barnes is his coach at Surrey CCC and is going to talk us through how he works with Jade on a daily basis from warm up drills to training for all three formats of the game. There is bound to be a focus on his variations as well. The Masterclass will involve watching Jade Dernbach doing the drills but also those attending will be able to go off in groups and work on the drills themselves. There will also be a Q&A and a chance to get autographs at the end. This will be a must for any aspiring young fast bowlers.
