Mike - 24-02-2020

Sam was fantastic with Elijah. He helped with run scoring to all parts of the ground. Being a young cricketer himself, he was able to connect and relate to Elijah. Highly recommend.

Tracey - 04-02-2020

Our son and his mates had a fun and memorable time with Sam Harper, he was very generous with his time and guidance. We’d certainly recommend Sam / Playbook to others. The booking process was smooth and communication was prompt & clear. Highly recommend!

Sam was a great with helping me improve my technique and what areas I needed improving. I look forward to our next session!

Chris - 02-10-2019

We decided to organise a session for Harvey with Sam as he wanted to improve his batting and wicket keeping for this years cricket season. Sam was very enthusiastic and engaging to Harvey and made the session really fun and enjoyable for a young inspiring cricketer. Sam was constantly giving positive feedback and was very encouraging. Harvey has walked away from his sessions full of confidence and the willingness to practice using the drills Sam has taught him over his couple of sessions. I would certainly recommend Sam to anyone who wanted to improve their cricket game. Thanks Sam for the sessions and we hope to continue with more in the future

Kobe - 19-02-2019

Kobe and I were very impressed with the session run by Sam. He kept things very simple and kept reinforcing the tips through some easy to follow drills. Sam has a very easy going style and was extremely friendly and made a real effort to communicate with Kobe and get to know him in a short amount of time. Kobe walked away from the session very positive and energised and wanting to do more sessions in the future. Thanks to Sam for a wonderful training session that we would definitely recommend to others.
