Spainish keepers are crazy for Crazy Catch … new videos from Malaga CF & Granada CdeF

As the new La Liga season kicks off in Spain, several leading clubs have been putting their goalkeepers through their pre-season paces with Crazy Catch – the Ultimate Rebound Net.

Only a few hours after joining Malaga, Mexican world cup star Guillermo Ochoa was put through his paces by GK coach Iñigo Arteaga meanwhile over at Granada CdeF, legendary coach Luis Llopis was working on a crossing drill with their keepers Roberto Fernandez, Stole Dimitrievski and Oier Olazabal. Llopis previously worked at Levente where their first choice keeper Keylor Navas enjoyed a tremendous World Cup and has now secured a big money move to Real Madrid.  Take a look at the footage below…

Crazy Catch (and RESPONSEBALL) are both available to purchase in Spain via http://futuresports.es/

Women’s Test Match v India at Wormsley : Can you beat Heather Knight in the One Minute Challenge?

The Kia Women’s Test Match : England v India takes place between Wednesday 13th August and Saturday 16th August 2014 at Wormsley Cricket ground and Crazy Catch will be there too set up in the nets running the One Minute Challenge where a signed England shirt is up for grabs for our winner.

Come down and see if you can challenge Heathers score of 67 catches in a minute and in doing so raise money for the Rwandan Cricket Stadium Foundation (RCSF) of which Heather is a patron and will be climbing Mount Killimanjao in September as part of the fundraising efforts. Mt Killi madness will attempt to become the highest game of cricket ever played. Flicx UK, who distribute Crazy Catch in the UK are supporting this project and have donated a Flicx Pitch to the foundation and now at the India Test match all proceeds from the One Minute Challenge will go towards Heathers fundraising for the climb which will in turn support RCSF.

Knight will also be England vice captain for this fixture and ECB Head of England Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor, said: “Heather now has the opportunity to learn from the most experienced international captain in the world as she works alongside Charlotte Edwards to help lead the England women’s team at the start of a new professional era for the women’s game.”

Crazy Catch at SportFest14 #fun #families #sport

What a fantastic weekend we have just had SportFest 2014 held down at Wormsley – a truely great event for all the family giving children aged 5 to 16 the chance to discover the enjoyment and fulfilment sport can bring. The brainchild of rugby legends Will Greenwood and Austin Healey, SportFest provides a unique opportunity for children to learn new skills and sports and best of all be inspired by true sporting legends including Pat Cash, John Barnes, Martin Johnson, Paul Nixon, Sarah Thomas, Andrew Strauss and Matthew Hoggard.

Crazy Catch were delighted to supply rebound nets into a number of the different sporting zones to enable skills to be refined and developed whilst still having fun and being challenged by the unpredictable rebounds.

We also set up our famous 1 minute challenge in which Will Greenwood top scored over the weekend with 62 catches in a minute. We also had Crazy Catches on sale throughout the weekend so a number of families have been able to continue the SportFest fun back at home.

Crazy Catch is a great way to improve your skills and have fun whatever your sport as the photos and videos in this blog demonstrate so well. We look forward to bigger and better things still at SportFest15 … Any sporty families, you have just got to be there!! Great job and many thanks to the organisers Ed, Polly and the Super Skills team.
