Cricket Academy Overview

The Lydia Greenway Cricket for Girls Academies provide promising club and county female players aged Under 11 or 11-18 the opportunity to develop and enhance their game by training regularly over a 6-8-week time frame. They are great programs to help players get ready for the season along with offering support throughout the season.

Elite Cricket Coaching for Girls

The academies are headed up by recently retired England cricketer, Lydia Greenway and her coaches. On looking back on her International career, Lydia has been able to reflect on important turning points which played a part in helping her go on and and achieve her goals:

“When I was in my early teens I was offered a place to be part of an academy. It was here I was constantly challenged and put out of my comfort zone, allowing me to understand my game and improve as a player. The coaches believed in me and had a passion to see us succeed. Having had that experience has made me realise how important it was for my development and I want to be able to give the same experience to young players coming through the system.”

Lydia and her fellow academy coaches are passionate, friendly, highly knowledgeable and have a wealth of experience to help players achieve their goals.
