There will be professional training, dedicated coaches and all cricket equipment supplied. And it’s free. There’s no better way to spend a day than making new friends learning how to play cricket.

The Alan Cooke Ground (ACG) is situated in Thalang. For directions see phuketcricketgroup.com or contact chairman@phuketcricketgroup.com
