The pavilion and nets are a prominent feature and are ideally situated for exposure and will be seen by a wide demographic every day. Whilst we are a small community club, we are committed to giving you and your company maximum exposure.
WHO WE ARE:
With over 300 members, AJ Coaching Academy runs all season cricket sessions, camps and one to one coaching. The club has competed in extensive league fixtures at the highest level and has won two age groups within the local NEC league every year since 2017. Friendly fixtures are also arranged. A number of players have represented Surrey County. The club provides a healthy and progressive youth development environment supported by top quality professional coaching.
Both AJ Coaching Cricket Academy and Morden Cricket Club have formed a strategic alliance to enable both parties to grow and flourish going forward. Established in 1891, Morden Cricket Club is based on Lower Morden Lane and matches are played in the picturesque setting of Morden Park. By having AJ Academy based at Morden Park sports ground and working closely with Morden Cricket Club, it will not only give our junior cricketers a permanent base but it also creates opportunities for them to progress into senior cricket. We are in the process of installing outdoor cricket nets.
AJ Coaching Cricket Academy is led by Founder and Director, Ali Jaffer who played first class cricket for Karachi in Pakistan. Founded in 2010 Ali and his team of coaches provide personalised attention to the children. A contrast to bigger clubs in the area where children can get lost in the crowed and never play competitive cricket, Ali’s passion stems from the belief that cricket is for everyone regardless of ability. The ethos is focused on building core skills in all disciplines of the game. The sessions are designed to be fun but focussed.
