Colts Cricket

Shepherds Bush Cricket Club runs competitive Colts Cricket for U10, U11, U13 and U15, and offers coaching without competitive matches to many other children from 6 and up. The Colts have regular weekly practices and matches throughout the season.

All of our coaches have been CRB checked and have ECB coaching qualifications. In addition to our coaches, we also have many volunteers who assist our coaches to help give that little bit more to our youth in a safe and friendly environment. We pride ourselves on the positive atmosphere we maintain at Colts’ sessions, and on the balance we achieve between playing for fun and playing to win.

We are proud to bringing the benefits of cricket to many primary schools in the area, via Jonathan Payne .

Help from parents is always very much appreciated, whether it is providing lifts to away matches, supporting social events, or even scoring.

Junior Kit

Club branded kit is not compulsory, although if possible we would like all children playing in representative matches to wear a club shirt – and in any case they must wear “whites” and white shoes for matches. Click on the Club Shop menu above to purchase kit.

Once your child starts playing with a hard ball (usually when they are about 10) she or he will be required to wear protective equipment, including a helmet, gloves, pads and a “box” when batting or wicket keeping and standing up to the wicket. All these items can be borrowed from the club if necessary, and there are usually a few spare bats about – but most children will probably want their own, and will likely find this to be more comfortable than borrowed equipment.
We do not recommend any particular brands or suppliers – fit and feel are more important than labels. You are, of course, very welcome to speak to any of the coaches about equipment.


Places for 2019 are full for all Boys Age Groups.
