Lewisham has an excellent selection of cricket venues where locals can enjoy the sport. The borough’s cricket facilities are more often than not grass surface, but there are a few artificial wickets at a few of them. This is because they are easier to keep in good nick 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 in the south east for sessions and enable players to really work on batting techniques.
