Cricket is offered all year round at Taunton. Indoor nets start in September in both the Senior and Prep sports hall for pupils from Year 5. Whilst there is a performance programme in place for our district and county cricketers, there are an equal number of open sessions for boys and girls looking to develop their game.
Boys spend the summer term focusing on cricket as their main sport. They generally play in their age groups, but those who have fine tuned their cricketing skills may get the opportunity to play in an older age group in county competitions. We are offering more and more girls cricket as its popularity continues to rise. We would expect to win/reach county cup finals each year.
The prep school has 2 of its own dedicated squares and 4 outdoor nets with access to a further 5 squares and 8 nets when required. The schools Director of Cricket is responsible for its provision across the schools. Fixtures take place on most Wednesdays and Saturdays with the school hosting a number of touring schools in the summer term.
