Saxon Sports Frankston is a family run business that we have owned and managed since August 2007.
The owners, Dennis Watts & Geoff Hall, took over the business whilst looking for a cricket based training facility in the region.
Geoff's son, Chris Hall, a former County Cricketer with Lancashire CCC in England, manages and runs the centre on their behalf.
Chris, as a Cricket Australia Level III Coach, conducts hundreds of coaching sessions and clinics a year within the centre as well continuing to play at the highest level of cricket in Victoria, for Casey South Melbourne CC in the Victorian Premier Cricket competition.
Geoff is a teacher of 40 years experience and Dennis a Chartered Accountant of 40 years experience also.
Both have been Presidents of their local cricket clubs over the years and understand whole heartedly the desires & needs of local cricket clubs.
The combined business experience and cricketing knowledge of Dennis, Geoff, Chris, Jason Watts, Matt McIndoe & Ben Bradley-Bridge makes Saxon Sports a place where every cricketer will be made to feel welcome and at home.

As well as the family passion for cricket, the love of soccer (football) attracted us to the business and with the competition management skills of Nathan BARON, our centre runs indoor soccer competitions every night of the week for men, ladies and juniors, with an array of grades to suit everyone from social player to the dedicated player.
