I know the season has just passed and it appears that I am pretty keen but I wish to get the wheels in motion to plan out this close season's use of Sheddocksley Indoor Nets. The reason I am posting so early is that some clubs have indicated with me that they would like to start the indoor practices sooner!
The last close season was the first time we used the shared facility and it appeared to have worked out very well for all of the clubs concerned. My club Portcullis saved a lot of money on costs as well as having more sessions to practice prior to the season starting. The feedback I got from other clubs participating in this shared venture was that this was a success and they too got greater value through this as well. The nets were very well spaced out (to my own surprise if I am honest!).
The clubs that took part last season were:
Aberdeen Super Kings
On top of that the odd player joined in from other clubs to get a practice, sharing the costs further with other clubs.
Could the clubs on this list please confirm if they wish to attend again, when they would like to start, how many lanes would they require and how often they would wish to attend.
Of course new clubs are welcome to join us as well. The sessions last year were held between 10am and 12pm every Sunday and most clubs attended around once a fortnight. By sharing the costs each lane costed £30 for a 2 hour session. Had each club booked the hall separately it would have cost £120 per two hour session!
I need to know the numbers of teams who are interested pretty soon so I can got to Sheddocksley and arrange the block bookings. I could rather go to them with a accurate estimate of how much we would need. If you could please get back to me then that would be great.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this, Cheers,
