Is my club the only one that doesnt have a bowling machine or something!
Every1 is talking about facing them at ents etc etc!
I've never even seen one in real life ... let alonne face one!
Are they useful?

I love them, except the only downfall is that it's not like facing a real bowler because you don't see the arm coming over so it's a little unreal in that respect!

I've never played against one!
And it's a little ambition of mine,(if i have a big enough house/garden, enough money, and kids that like crikcte) To have my own!
No idea why!
I'd just love to be able to go into the garden and bat for an hour or so , against consistent balls. (Not sprayed down the leg side etc)

No you can't, you can use proper cricket balls just no-one chooses too. At Fusion they've always used proper balls and their bowling machine is 10yrs old now or something.
