SWINGA Cricket

About the SWINGA™ Technique Ball

The hardest skill to coach in cricket is how to play the moving ball. 

Before the SWINGA, the only way to authentically practice against the swinging ball is to buy a brand-new leather cricket ball, which can cost anywhere between $20 and $70 AUD, only for the shine to come off the ball almost immediately in the nets (where the ball can easily get damaged or wet). When the shine goes, so does the swing.

This is why I created the SWINGA. I developed the ball to replicate the swing and movement of the new leather cricket ball, but it's designed so that it will never stop swinging - no matter how much it is used.

The SWINGA is the same size and virtually the same weight as an authentic leather ball. It bounces off the pitch in a normal fashion. The feeling off the bat is almost identical to a normal ball. But unlike a normal leather ball, where the lacquer and leather will come off quickly, the SWINGA has been engineered with material so it will never stop swinging, won't go out of shape, and can still be used in wet conditions.
