Haringey has a good selection of cricket facilities where locals can enjoy the sport. The borough’s cricket venues are mostly grass surface, but there are some artificial wickets at a few of them. These are easier to keep in good condition and also work in light rain. Cricket nets are available to book at some sports venues and they are perfect for cricketers looking to get back into the sport following the traditional winter break. Bowling machines can be hired out for sessions and enable players to really work on batting techniques.
