Camden contains a strong selection of cricket pitches that can be booked online using MyLocalPitch.com. The majority of the cricket venues are grass, but there are a few of the astro-turf variety. These astroturf pitches are only on the wicket to allow for play to continue in light rain. A selection of the cricket facilities in the borough have cricket nets and these are an excellent way to help get back into the sport after a break or to practise before a big fixture. Visitors are advised to confirm with individual facility managers if there are indoor nets and bowling machines.
