    Testimonials

    Richard Pybus has coached world class cricket players over the years. Here's what some of them have to say about him.
    A.B. de Villiers

    "CONSISTENCY with decision making:
    Never have I met a Coach who's been this solid with game plans, on & off the field!

    CALMNESS under pressure:
    From the first day I met Richard, he's had the ability to calm players down by just being there. His presence and especially the way of speaking in the heat of battle, have been a joy to witness and I've also gained a lot from this.

    CREATIVE thinking:
    He always comes up with new, refreshing ideas that keep everyone on their toes. This is certainly one thing I've really enjoyed about him.

    These are just a few of many points showing why I think Richard is one of the best, if not the best Coach in the world!!!

    It's been a true privilege to have played under him, and I hope our roads will cross again somewhere in the near future!!"

    A.B de Villiers
    Titans, Delhi DareDevils and South Africa

    Martin Van Jaarsfeld

    "Over the years I've worked with a lot of coaches and many of them were technically very astute. When RP took over the coaching job at the Titans he brought a new dimension to my game. Technically, he knows what he is talking about but it is his mental approach that changed me as a player. Mentally he raised my game and made me understand the processes behind being a consistent performer. He is by far the best coach I've ever worked with."

    Martin van Jaarsfeld
    Titans, Kent and South Africa

    Martin Van Jaarsfeld

    "Richard Pybus…. his out-of-the-box thinking and cricket knowledge are second to none: one of the best coaches I've ever worked with, a true gentleman and student of the game of cricket."

    Pierre Joubert
    4 Time Championship Winning Captain of the Nashua Titans.SA

    Where Do I Practice?

    Wherever you can find 22 yards to bowl and have a run up. The nets, the middle strip, the playground, the back lane, the sports field. You just need a flat, surface and safe area.

    Do I Need A Partner?

    A Coach, Parent, Partner would be great to help you, but if they aren't available that is not an excuse not to work on your game. You just need a net or wall behind the target and stumps to stop the ball.
