WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT THE KATCHET...
Former coach, the Austrailian Cricket Team
To Colin Smith and his team who have produced "Katchet" fielding boards - you have brought the old slips cradle back into vogue with a much more portable and effective device. I was first shown the device during the famous 2005 ashes tour. Since that time we used the boards extensively with the Australian Cricket Team.
We have been able to use these on all surfaces and have found it to work well anywhere. The players have responded very well to the drills we use.
As a coach who is on the road for many months of the year, the "Katchet" cricket board is a welcome addition as it is light, durable and is easily transportable.
I believe it will be a welcome addition to any team or club's coaching equipment.

My preparation is crucial and the Katchet is a big part of my routine.
The Katchet has helped me sharpen my keeping skills and reflexes, I take it to every cricket ground.
Cricket Director at Yorkshire.C.C
We used the ‘Katchet’ at Durham C.C.C. and then at Yorkshire and found it an extremely useful addition to our catching practice routines.
It has been used by our wicket keeper to practice both stood up to the wicket and stood back. We have also used it for the slip cordon. It is excellent for working on reactions and is very versatile.
We will always use it, as it was very popular with the players.
I am am very much looking forward to the KatchMax to provide a further edge.

Australian fielding coach
I have used the Katchet extensively when coaching the Australian cricket team. It became an integral feature of our fielding exercises due to its flexibility of usage. It has made a huge impact on the all round catching and movement patterns of the Australian team.

“The Katchet is a smart innovation for the modern coach. It is simple to use and is designed to be easily packed to take wherever you need it.
Colin has a done a great job in refining the product to provide realistic simulation for a wide variety of ground fielding and catching situations. The unpredictable but fair deviation off its surface will enable players of all levels to hone their catching skills and reflexes in almost any training environment.
I would recommend the Katchet to all cricket coaches who want to see their players enjoy their training whilst improving their game.”
