JOIN IN ON OUR OPEN EVENING ON FRIDAY 25/9/2015
As the Summer draws to a close and the threat of long, dark and rainy evenings becomes ever more a reality, another Indoor Cricket season approaches.
Willows Sports Centre’s Indoor Cricket leagues offer your team quality entertainment for the months ahead. Not played for a while? Forgotten how much fun Indoor Cricket can be? Well here’s a brief reminder.
At Willows Sports Centre, we have three superbly carpeted indoor cricket courts on which the fast and fun Aussie game is played. Our leagues are fully administrated – all fixtures, league tables and statistics compiled for you leaving you simply to turn up and play each week. An umpire is supplied and we can also supply bats and gloves should you require. Large plasma scoreboards and a fully interactive web and social media presence will complement your enjoyment of playing!
Our leagues usually consist of seven or eight divisions, each of 6-8 teams. Teams’ ability and standard ranges from those who play cricket at a high standard to those who enjoy the social side of the game more than actually playing it! Whatever your team’s ability, we have a division suitable for you.
Our new autumn leagues begin in late September and run through until the New Year. For more details of how to enter your team, please contact us via email, or call us on 01332 204004.
Walking football is going from strength to strength at Willows! Read about our first festival involving teams from other Walking Football venues on the DFA website below.
Fancy giving netball a go this spring? We have leagues to suit all standards of players, from social and recreational teams, to more experienced elite players. We run leagues every night of the week and also have the following new leagues starting very soon!

England Netball is delighted to announce that we are introducing a fabulous new version of the sport, Nets!
As part of the new format we can also confirm that England Netball has now merged with the Indoor Netball Association to be able to deliver the best possible product for our netball lovers across the country.
The Indoor Netball Association (INA) is a voluntary organisation that has been promoting grassroots participation and managing teams representing England internationally. Over the last 18 months a close collaboration has formed between the INA and England Netball; this has already seen England Netball recognising Indoor Netball as a form of the game.
Along with England Netball, they are now pleased to announce that the two organisations have agreed to merge.
The Indoor Netball participants and stakeholders will continue to influence the development of the game through an Advisory Group reporting directly to the England Netball’s Board.
