Phoenix Cricket Club is proud to boast the most substantial and arguably best coaching team in Ireland. We are committed to investing in coaching and developing our own coaches as we recognize that this is the lifeblood of any successful club. We aspire to provide an enjoyable experience of cricket, from the first ball at a young (or old!) age right the way through to the Taverners, or the lower adult teams.
We provide coaching from 4 years of age, right the way through every team at Phoenix Cricket Club – and adapt our style to each different playing environment.
