The original conceptual brief to provide accurate and consistent batting practice for cricketers of all standards and abilities is still very much alive but evolutionary development over a quarter of a century has made the latest BOLAs better than ever. BOLA Machines are used by thousands of schools, clubs, private individuals and organisations who have recognised a very tangible and enjoyable way of improving batting performance. A first class cricket practice facility available to all cricketers at an affordable price. The BOLA Bowling Machine is the best fun you’ll have on your own in a cricket net!
Ever since the original BOLA Machine was purchased by Surrey County Cricket Club in 1985 and shortly afterwards by the England Test Side BOLA manufacturers Stuart & Williams have vigorously pursued a policy of continuous improvement and development. The key concepts of the original BOLA design remain very much in evidence but the latest machines are complemented by modern technology and innovation. The BOLA ‘Professional’ benefits from an electronic random delivery mode, a sophisticated speed control system and an updated electronics package. The 2015 BOLA is extremely energy efficient and offers much greater battery operation time so your sessions in the middle or net with no mains power will tire all but the most persistent of net practisers.
After more than two decades in production the BOLA can be found in a huge variety of cricketing environments. All the English first class counties use the BOLA as well as the MCC Indoor School at Lord’s (which has used BOLA machines exclusively since 1986) and the ECB National Academy at Loughborough. The BOLA is also to be found in all sorts of venues across the world from the Sydney and Melbourne Cricket Grounds in Australia to the Mumbai Cricket Club in India. Wherever there is cricket practice the BOLA is not far away.
