Gary has worked with a number of First Class, International and professional players as a technical batting coach and has the reputation of being one of the best in the country. Many players that have worked with Gary using his processes have gone on to enjoy enhanced performances and scored more runs - Sir Alastair Cook, Shan Masood and recently Dom Sibley have have all benefited from Gary's coaching.
The secret to Cook's revival? A secret coach
"Alastair Cook was quick to praise his long-term mentor, Graham Gooch, for his return to form in Test cricket, but it turns out there was another coach whose influence might have been just as important."

Dom Sibley improves following an intensive 3 hour batting session with Gary Palmer at the Palmer Batting Lab.
"Palmer, who has worked with Cook and Ian Bell among others, helped Sibley implement a more front-on technique"
"The results have been staggering. Having previously managed 2,178 first-class runs at an average of 29.83, he has returned 2,019 first-class runs at 72.10 since."

Gary has also worked with Hampshire's Joe Weatherley View Hampshire Cricket Club's article on "Joe Weatherley: Striving For Greatness".During these elite player sessions Gary will do a technical assessment of the player, identifying how their batting can be improved and looking at their coaching needs in order to enhance performance.
This is followed by a technical development session. During this session Gary will work with the player to repair or enhance any areas of technique that may need adjustment. Once the technique has been fine tuned Gary will challenge it using his 4 angle grooving system to make sure this technique is robust and efficent against all angles and swing types.
During a 2 or 3 hour elite session players will face hundreds of deliveries while enhancing their consistency of shot execution and shot selection.
1-1 coaching from Gary can be part of your pre-season preparation and/or on going support throughout the season to maintain performance.
