The positive qualities of artificial Cricket wickets and practice nets

By admin on November 24, 2014

Artificial cricket wickets put a better spin on cricket practice and match play. Giving consistent performance, synthetic cricket wickets provide an even playing ground for batsmen and bowlers.

Sam Baird, a former coach and selector of Junior Northern Districts representative teams, raised some relevant points about the positive qualities of artificial practice wickets.

The turf in the practice nets at Cornwall Park wasn’t performing satisfactorily at training sessions, so   asked TigerTurf to replace the old turf with one of our technical cricket wicket turfs. We recommended TigerTurf Premier, a reliable and durable cricket surface that demonstrates all the points listed above. The batsmen can now work safely on their batting style, and the bowlers’ extended run-up has an all-weather flat surface providing excellent traction.

Matt Davies, the club manager, said: “TigerTurf has always been our supplier of choice, and the quality of turf in the new nets is a testament to TigerTurf’s products.”

Sam Baird said he’d be 80 not out if he’d played on one of the modern artificial grass wickets. The earlier artificial turfs were very hard on the ankles and joints of bowlers; in fact some teams refused to use them. The new generation of synthetic grass wickets present a wonderful surface for cricketers of any age or ability.

TigerTurf has installed cricket surfaces for every playing situation: match play, net practice and indoor training facilities. We have cricket wickets to suit every level of play, from junior school cricket to more advanced wickets for senior and competition games.

Sitting under shady trees, watching your cricketer batting or keeping wicket on a synthetic pitch, you can feel sure that no errant ball will knock out a front tooth, but his wickets, that’s another story…
