Butch's Tips
Barnes CC continues to have one of the largest qualified coaching teams in London Club Cricket providing tuition and support. However, to ensure we have an enjoyable summer of colts cricket, we always need parents to assist and support our coaches.

Middlesex Coaches AssociationThe club provides support for parents and players over 16 years old to attend  Middlesex Cricket Coach Education courses.
