Cricket Coaching Experience Packages at The Kia Oval

With our Cricket Experience Packages you will enjoy some unique team building in our cricket centre followed by a buffet and drinks in our historic Committee room.

The Cricket Coaching Experience
Cricket is an easy sport to play that everyone can get involved with. Our coaching staff will start the group off with some basic drills, including catching, bowling and batting. The coaching staff will adapt the session based on the ability of the guests – learn new skills or develop existing talent! The session will finish with some short games so everyone can show off their new skills. The centre is indoors, so the activity is available all year round and is suitable for groups up to 25 guests.

The Committee Room and Catering
Built in 1895, The Committee room within the Pavilion is considered the “inner sanctum” of Surrey County Cricket Club. The room is decorated with portraits of legendary cricketers and overlooks our famous ground. This elegant room is a perfect location to enjoy a buffet and private bar for your guests after the cricket session.
