3 new “Think Outside the Box” drills from Crazy Catch

If like many you have been enjoying the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup over the past month, the performances of new Crazy Catch ambassador Tammy Beaumont who is at the time of writing, England’s leading run scorer with 387.

Just before the event, we filmed some new and innovative Crazy Catch drill with Mark Garaway at Millfield School with the objective of showcasing different ways to use the Ultimate Rebound Net in your training, so we have drills for batting, power hitting, run outs and wicket keeping to name but a few. Check out these three latest Think Outside the Box drills “Inner Ring Fielding”, Stumping and Catching and Fungo Power Hitting – why not give them a go in your next training session.

As well as the Crazy Catch range for cricket which covers (from smallest to largest) the Crazy Catch Freestyle, Crazy Catch Upstart Classic, Crazy Catch Wildchild Classic and the Crazy Catch Professional Classic, we also have some excellent new Vision Ball packs which can help develop visual skills and are used in cognitive decision making and to provide a different pace of bounce/ rebound.

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.”

Gunning for victory

It’s great to see some coverage of the England Women’s cricket team over in India for the world cup at the moment. (they even made the cover of All Out Cricket for the first time!)

Prior to Christmas Crazy Catch were delighted to meet the team’s Vice Captain Jenny Gunn (follow her on Twitter @GunnJenny ) at a filmed training session with Complete Cricket. This short video shows Jenny taking the Crazy Catch 1 minute challenge and doing some fielding practice with the new Crazy Catch Freestyle. After losing to the tournaments surprise package Sri Lanka in their first match, England are now back on track and through to the Super Sixes.
