It's the time of year (in northern hemisphere) that we head to sports halls to get ourselves primed for the season ahead. As a batsman, I love the intense 10 minutes of batting, facing ball after ball in quick succession. I also know that the indoor net behaves nothing like the pitches I'm going to be playing on in April, May - actually all summer, as I live in NW England; quicks don't have full run-ups; there's nobody on the boundary taking the catch, etc
I've blogged about some of my own netting experiences at: Winter nets Declaration Game
What do other CW users feel about indoor net practice?
