Luton has a thriving grassroots cricket scene. This north based part of London has a wide selection of cricket venues that can be booked using MyLocalPitch.com. The majority of the cricket pitches are of the grass variety, however there are some venues that have put in astro-turf wickets to make it easier for groundsmen to look after the pitches. Cricket nets are a great way for cricketers to practise bowling and batting. If you really want to work on batting, then bowling machines can be rented out at select cricket venues around Luton.
