Indoor Cricket Centre, Warwickshire County Cricket Club

An open and inviting building, Warwickshire County Cricket Clu'b' Indoor Cricket Centre promotes community participation. Designed by Bryant Priest Newman Architects and David Morley Architects.

The primary function of the training centre is the provision of indoor accommodation for both developing young cricketers from the local community, and local clubs. The club also provides facilities for professional cricketers to practice in all-weather conditions.

The building is a purpose-built bespoke sports facility which uses standardised components in order to provide a functional yet economic solution. Externally the centre looks crisp and inviting, whilst the glazing admits a high level of natural light to the interior.

In addition to the 8-lane indoor practice facility and changing rooms, the building accommodates office space for regional, youth and disabled cricket boards, a shop, a bar with views into the practice area and a top floor outdoor terrace.
