Our Story

Ben and Ian are both avid cricket fans, and play for cricket clubs in Hampshire.

Ben has recently stepped away from a successful career in Financial Services to bring cricket to a wider young audience. Ben is Dad to two boys, Harry and Max who are currently in primary school in Winchester. His business acumen, alongside exceptional organisational skills help the business side of Cricket Hoppers run smoothly.

Our Head Coach Ian has a wealth of experience in cricket coaching, and is the current Head Coach of Easton & Martyr Worthy Cricket Club, a role he’s held since 2003. Since he qualified as a Physical Education, English and Drama teacher (Exeter University) Ian has spent many years involved in school cricket both primary and senior school age. Combining his teaching qualification and the work he’s been involved in with the ICC & ECB coaching programmes (since first qualifying in 1988, Ian now holds the ECB Level 3 qualification) Cricket Hoppers gives him the opportunity to bring cricket to a younger audience, all year round, something he’s very excited about.
