Redbridge has an excellent group of cricket pitches that can be booked online with MyLocalPitch. The majority of the cricket venues are grass surfaces, but there are a few that have installed astro-turf wickets. These astroturf pitches are just on the wicket to allow for play to go on in light rain. Some of the Redbridge cricket venues in the borough are lucky to 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 match. Visitors are advised to confirm with individual facility managers if there are bowling machines and indoor nets.
