“When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves” -William Arthur Ward, American Educationalist and Author

Consequently, Cricket Wellington wants every cricketer to have access to an appropriately qualified coach to ensure they reach their potential or desired level of leisure, activity or competition.
