Single Bay Success at Avoncroft Cricket Club!


The works at Avoncroft CC involved the full supply and installation of a new single lane practice facility. The job was completed to meet the clients exact specifications.


The works started with the excavation of an area 25.9 x 4m to a consistent depth of 100mm beneath the finish level. The reason for this excavation is to create a level playing surface.


The Cricket system was fitted to current Notts Sport designs & specification, consisting o1 no. 26 x 4m Notts Sport® Envelope System® practice pitch. The surface of choice was Notts Sport® Ultra grass, marked out as per the rules of the game.



We completed the job with the installation of a single bay cricket cage and netting at 21.96m in length.

This was then fully clad with green knot less netting to the wings, back and roof of the facility. The system was also completed with a wire tensioning system fitted to prevent billowing.


The system was installed with a view to mirroring natural play conditions as best as possible.

An example of this is in the early season, when the surface is wet, the play created will be slower and lower.

As the surface dries out, it will create a quicker pitch with more bounce.
