Brent has a wide selection of cricket pitches that can be hired out online. Most of the cricket venues are using grass pitches, but there are a few that have chosen to put in astro-turf wickets. These artificial mean that the wickets need less upkeep and can also be used in light rain. Some of the Brent cricket venues have cricket nets on site for players. Nets are perfect for a friendly knock about with friends or to practise your batting or bowling following the winter break. Occasionally bowling machines are able to be booked for those just dedicated to improving batting technique.
