The Cricket School

The indoor school was officially opened by Sir Henry Spencer, Managing Director of Richard, Thomas and Baldwin Ltd on the 21st August 1963.  The ceremony was held before the Glamorgan match against Nottinghamshire.

The School was extensively refurbished in 1995 and a new floor was laid in July 2006. The building is used by clubs from a wide area and for specialist coaching by the Gwent Coaching Association and Cricket Wales (formally The Cricket Board of Wales).
