Grafton United Cricket Club

Auckland, New Zealand

“The new cricket surface has made a huge improvement to our indoor facility at the club,” Mike Ruffell said, and added that the Grafton United Cricket Club

players are very positive about their upgraded indoor cricket nets.

The existing cricket surface at the Grafton United Cricket Club indoor practice facility was showing signs of heavy use, especially on the bowling run-up.  A few holes were causing concern for the players’ safety, added to by the lack of support underfoot, which was affecting the bowlers’ performance. The indoor practice nets are essential for the training and practice schedule of this busy cricket club.

The worn turf detracted from the appearance of the facility too, so it was definitely time to refresh the look and performance of the club’s practice nets.

TigerTurf Premier Indoor is a safe, durable cicket surface 

TigerTurf Premier Indoor was chosen for its playing qualities, which give the players a surface with consistent spin and bounce, with no danger of rogue turns that can destroy young players’ confidence.

The surface provides safe, non-slip footing for the bowlers as they run up the wicket and withstands years of daily cricket practice.

Costs saved by Recycling the Existing Rubber Underlay 

As the existing rubber pad was found to be still in good condition, we were able to lay the Premier indoor playing surface over that, giving the absorbency and cushioning needed to protect the bowlers during repeated run-ups.

“The players have commented favourably on the improved feel and softness of the new surface, which gives them much more support as they run in, particularly at the landing point as they release the ball,” Mike Ruffell says, “and this reduces injuries and improves safety for our players, allowing them to train at 100%.”

The appearance of the indoor nets is brighter and fresher too: “The turf looks fantastic,” commented Mike, “and we are very happy with the new look of our indoor cricket facility.”
