CRICKET WICKETS


We offer a choice of systems to suit all your playing needs from natural grass to high performance, low maintenance synthetic pitches for both match and practice wickets.

Our natural wickets are expertly constructed by traditional methods of straight edging and treading to achieve optimum levels for a sound job. We have been constructing top quality cricket tables since 1964 and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to call upon ensuring our clients get the best ultimate performance.

Additionally, we have within our organisation all the specialised plant and machinery to construct a completely new facility including all the earthworks to create a level plateau, installation of primary and secondary drainage systems to a very high specification, supplying and spreading of topsoil to the outfield as well as loam to the table. Amelioration of topsoil with sand and composts as well as cultivation and seeding. In addition we can maintain your facility until handover to your own staff or on a contract basis.

We give the same care and attention to detail when constructing Bowling Greens. By using the correct drainage layers and drainage channels we can provide a natural grass surface that will perform even after heavy rainfall, allowing more intensive play and use.

Synthetic or ‘non turf’ cricket pitches are a common feature now at most clubs and schools they are a well used asset to everyone particularly for training requirements and hosting junior matches. They make good economical sense in situations where available spaces for summer sports such as cricket are limited (i.e. between rugby or football pitches on school playing fields) or where the skill to maintain a natural square is not available.

Synthetic strips are also the ideal product for your practice areas allowing you continuous use of the area without dire consequences, as would be the case with grass wickets. Wickets are available as either batting and bowling ends or any combination of full length strips to suit your playing standards, be they schools level or English County Cricket Board approved level.

We can also provide suitable cages/nets to compliment your practice facilities.
