Running alongside the Women’s World Cup hosted around England this June and July; Crazy Catch are pleased to announce our brand new campaign “Think Outside the Box” which see’s England’s Tammy Beaumont demonstrating some new and innovative Crazy Catch drills for cricket working with Director of Cricket at Millfield School Mark Garaway.
Says Marketing Manager Kate Costin Think Outside the Box is all about providing coaches with new drill ideas away from the traditional throw and catch concept often associated with Crazy Catch “This series of six drills shows the Crazy Catch as an all round training aid for cricket so we have some great batting drills and ways to use the Crazy Catch to improve your visual skills and decision making”. “Coaches will be able to access these drills via our social channels and also download the FREE PDF which gives all the information you need to run the practice at your school or club so the drill set up, equipment list, progressions, coaching points and some great advice from Tammy and Mark. We are sure that players will be able to make significant gains in their game with this outside the box thinking and hopefully we will see the Crazy Catch being used more creatively as its a hugely versatile piece of kit”
The Crazy Catch classic range for cricket has both a SANE and INSANE side when used with a small ball. This enables the product to be used at all levels of the game across batting, bowling and fielding skills whilst its also great for team games, warm ups and for gym work incorporating reaction training.

Real Madrid is one of the world’s biggest football clubs and they along with top goalkeeping coach Luis Llopis, have been using Crazy Catch for a couple of years now. Watch this new video of a reaction session featuring Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla and Ryan Yanez Alabart.
This session uses the Crazy Catch Wildchild Double Trouble as well as a mixture of footballs and smaller tennis balls. Using smaller balls develops quicker reflexes and also aids visual performance (plus going back to using footballs then makes these balls much easier to save). The unique thing about the Crazy Catch is its INSANE rebound so the tennis ball comes off the net very erratically pushing you to the limit and making for a very intensive session. Luis also sometimes pushes the net as the ball impacts to create more pace and unpredictability for these elite keepers. Try some of these ideas in your next session …
Crazy Catch is the original and best rebound net for football (or Soccer) training … Chose from the Double Trouble range; these have large netting on one side, so it’s INSANE even with a football (grey side in image above), then small netting on the front. The Ultimate Rebound Net is available from leading football retailers including Pro Direct Soccer.
