Sir Garfield Sobers Cricket Coaching Centre


About the Facility

Never let the weather dampen your bowling or batting practice again!

Named after the great Sir Garfield Sobers, the Coaching Centre (formerly the Indoor Cricket School)  is the perfect complement to the 3Ws Oval. The Centre rises to approximately 35 feet, is complete with a storage room and can accommodate up to four different types of sessions in the four indoor bowling lanes provided. Batsmen can also benefit from the BOLA Mechanical Bowling Machines.  If cricketers desire a more realistic feel for their session, the facility also comprises two outdoor nets named after former West Indian fast bowler Malcolm Marshall.

The state-of-the-art training facility plays host to national, regional and international cricketers and has been established as the high performance training facility for the West Indies Academy in Barbados.
