Artificial cricket turf is suitable for both indoor and outdoor. A non-turf pitch is more durable than natural grass so it can provide many more hours of play with excellent playing characteristics. Cricket pitch maintenance is very labour-intensive. Artificial grass still requires maintenance but it’s minimal in comparison. Natural grass has to be fertilised, mowed, rolled and levelled. The cricket pitch must be perfectly flat and the grass on the wicket itself has to be kept very short, but this means it gets worn away during a match.
Choosing synthetic grass for your cricket pitch offers many hours of play with no compromise on pitch quality. Artificial cricket pitch surfaces can withstand extreme weather conditions so they can be left uncovered all year round. The water drains through the surface, allowing all weather play. An artificial cricket pitch is equally suitable for clubs, schools and local authorities, where the high costs of maintenance could be prohibitive. Schools can really benefit from cricket pitches made from synthetic grass. The hard-wearing grass can withstand the heavy footfall of extensive summer use, and shock pads can be installed underneath to reduce dangerous ball bounce, reducing possible injuries. Plastic grass can also be used in practice areas and the nets, whether inside or out.
