"Chris Ellison has coached at Henley CC, Berkshire CCC and now at a National Level for the last ten years and enjoyed considerable success. He is firmly committed to the development of young people as cricketers and the further advancement of more senior players at Premiership level.

This speaks volumes for his initiative and commitment." Brian Kenworthy, Chairman Henley CC.
"Last week my son, attended your holiday cricket camp. My son can be a bit shy so I asked to stay on to see how he got on. The two coaches who were running the camp on that day were great, not just with helping my son being able to join in but also how they encouraged the other children too. Please can you give my personal thanks for their efforts they are a credit to the camp and school.Another thing that stood out was how encouraging the other children were, having seen the two coaches in action I am assuming that the children have been there before and have been influenced by great leadership."
"Owen had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed himself. He particularly liked the drills in the bowling. Group numbers were 'just about right!' Length of sessions were also about right. He would definitely recommend the course to any cricketer who wished to improve his skills". Parent (February half term 2014).
"It is honestly incredible to see an enterprise today that is not just about making money, but rather delivers so many positives, an introduction or entertaining day for kids, where they can compete and have fun but also helping to develop good sportsmanship." Parent (February half term 2014).

"I have worked with Chris Ellison for 8 years both as County Captain for Berkshire and Club Captain at Henley Cricket Club. I have yet to meet a cricket coach more dedicated to getting the best out each and every player he works with. Attention to detail and a "never say die" attitude are just some of his strengths as both a player and coach I have been accustomed to with Chris.... " Bjorn Mordt, former Berkshire CCC Captain and Henley Club Captain
