Hard cricket balls must not be used in the safety zone (see below) at any time.
Players knocking up must use the nets or the practice area, hitting the ball away from spectators.
When using the nets, players must be aware at all times of batsmen hitting the ball towards them.
Batsmen using the nets must wear a helmet.
When changing or talking players should be behind the wings of the nets and not in front..
