The Pitch It Up Ball Set are the only balls designed for use with the Pitch It Up Cricket Bowling Machine Cricket Training Aid. No other automated bowling machine ball spins and curves like this ball!
The design of the ball and direct flight as it launches from the Pitch It Up Cricket Training Aid aims to train the cricketer to improve their vision of the ball when batting, catching and fielding.
The light-weight yellow balls simulate bowling and ball flight while reducing the risk of damage to windows and property.
The ball is the same size as a cricket ball, solid and firm but not hard-coated like a cricket ball. This allows the cricketer to gain confidence as they bat and catch the ball as it launches. It’s great for improving reflexes.
The yellow colour is more easily seen to aid in the development of young cricketers and helps them learn to “see the ball” during projection. This is really evident when using the spin bowling functionality of the Pitch It Up Cricket Training Aid. The yellow colour also is much easier to find amongst grass and garden surrounds!
All top coaches will agree that having the correct size equipment is crucial especially for junior players.

It is important that gloves have a nice snug fit. If they are too loose the palm will bunch up and cause discomfort and they will wear out prematurely. With gloves it is acceptable to allow up to 10mm (1cm) of extra room at the end of the fingers.

Pads are probably the most difficult to fit correctly. There is only limited room for error, and pads need to be fitted correctly to allow for a good amount of movement - There's nothing worse than being caught short on a quick single!! Ideally your knee should be centered in the knee roll and the "top hat" should not get in the way when playing your shots - particularly front foot shots.
With so many different brands of helmets available, it is important to check the circumference measurements within the different brand and helmets styles. To select the correct size, measure the circumference around the cap line (where a cap would sit). Most of our listed helmets will have a cm measurement guide to follow.
