"Having coached on the PiriPiri camps before and knowing how much fun these kids have on them, with the great coaching provided. 
I would have loved to be part of them at a young age" 
Tymal Mills  


"Ben has been coaching my eldest son for the last 3.5 half years helping him to achieve great results on the field, and selection into county and district teams. Ben has focussed on all round skills including essential batting/bowling and fielding, but also fitness, confidence and leadership. It has been great to see my son’s cricket game progress. We also have two younger children who are not yet playing to these levels, but they thoroughly enjoy the chilli pod and young guns sessions. Piri Piri has something for everyone at all levels of the game. And most importantly, they all have FUN" 
Thank you Ben and team – Mrs S
