Merlyn and Troy Coolley

2024 'Merlyn by BOLA' Spin Bowling Machine

The 'Merlyn by BOLA' spin bowling machine – which was developed by BOLA Manufacturing Ltd in conjunction with the England and Wales Cricket Board – was greeted with praise and enthusiasm by professional players and coaches alike when it first went on sale in 2010. Merlyn was invented by Henry Pryor and the original prototype was part of England's historic victory over Australia in the 2005 Ashes. Stuart & Williams (BOLA) developed the next generation 'Merlyn by BOLA' for the England and Wales Cricket Board, who were searching for a means to extend the experience of first-class players against top class spin bowling and after receiving a design proposal and viewing a mechanical prototype twenty machines were ordered which are currently in use at every first class county, the England test squad and the ECB Academy.'Merlyn by BOLA' provides the coach with the flexibility to deliver any combination of leg-breaks, off-breaks, top spinners and arm balls that he or she requires. The 'easy to use' switch panel allows complete control of line, speed, flight and the amount of top spin and side spin imparted to each delivery. The machine can be programmed to deliver any 'over' the coach can conceive.READ MORE...

Fielding Trainer

2024 BOLA Fielding Trainer with Gimballed Turntable

BOLA Hockey Ball Machine mounted on a gimballed swivelling turntable. Instant adjustment of direction and elevation. Designed for Hockey goalkeeper training the turntable is excellent for a wide range of Cricket fielding and catching exercises. Availlable with extended legs. Fielding Turntables are sold as a unit with a BOLA Hockey Machine. This is because the dimpled plastic balls (used by the Cricket Bowling Machines)are not particularly well suited to catching practices – they are very hard on the hands - and fielding drills are more effective with cricket balls. The Hockey Machine has rubber based ball throwing wheels which are more efficient when working with leather cricket balls. In addition to this, it is necessary to remove all the Ball Joint / Tripod assembly to fit the machine to the Turntable so it makes switching between batting and fielding with a Cricket Bowling Machine impractical.
