New Match Pitches and Prices
The ECB has noted in its National Facilities Strategy that if cricket is to continue to grow and develop it is crucial that there is serious investment in the provision of facilities at Schools, Clubs and at First Class level.
With participation up by 51% since 2004/5 and over 3,600 ECB Affiliated clubs already having junior sections, the pressure on grass pitches has never been greater.
A good non-turf cricket pitch has, increasingly since 1976 when ClubTurf pitches were first developed and introduced, become an essential facility for Clubs and Schools. ClubTurf pitches are designed to play like grass wickets but only require a fraction of the routine maintenance of their natural counterparts.
Obviously, therefore, a ClubTurf pitch takes the pressure off the rest of the square and copes with as many junior fixtures, limited over/Twenty20 matches, practice, and even lettings as can be fitted in.
A ClubTurf match pitch can be used for practice with the use of a mobile netcage, and this can be doubled with two mobiles placed back to back across the middle of the pitch. Remember, though, this might place extra onus on rolling the pitch to iron out any dints in the hard-porous.
All ClubTurf pitches are 2.75m wide. Match Pitches are supplied in two standard lengths: 27m which gives 3.4m of bowler run-up at each end, and 30m which provides 4.9m of run-up.
See the specification pages for the differences between Natural and International pitches.
