In 2018 we welcomed England Test Cricketer, Olly Stone to help with our Winter Masterclass

Having coached alongside Ben this season, it’s clear that he has a real passion for what he does. He always looks to improve every player he works with, and treats everyone as an individual. I am particularly impressed with how well run and supported his group coaching sessions are, and for young players, the environment created by Ben is ideal for improving skills whilst having fun.
