The weather is at its coldest and the last thing you might be thinking of is a game of cricket on a pitch that hasn’t held up to the weather, but thanks to synthetic turf for cricket pitches, a game can be on the cards, whatever time of year it is.
An artificial cricket pitch is a handy alternative to the traditional grass surfaces which are used for cricket matches the world over. They are designed to have the same look and feel as real grass, but with added benefits. Gone are the days of poorly constructed bases and inferior carpets, modern synthetic turf for cricket matches can replace original grass surfaces, ensuring similarly excellent levels of play, with no problems at all.
What is synthetic turf?
Synthetic turf for cricket is created using man-made fibres that look like real grass. The surfaces are designed to play like grass wickets but only require a tiny proportion of the amount of maintenance needed for real grass cricket pitches.
Our artificial synthetic turf cricket pitches come in three variations:
- British Made Wilton Weave Carpet (which comes with a 15-20 year lifespan)
- Eco Needle Punched Carpet
- Basic Tufted Turf Carpet
At CJ Sports, we take pride in installing a wide range of sports equipment that is top-quality and built to last. What’s more, we offer a lifetime guarantee on our synthetic turf, so you can get the peace of mind you need when making your investment.
There are plenty of reasons to install synthetic turf. For example, the artificial carpet weave material we use requires basic maintenance over the many years of its lifespan, which means time and money can be saved in so many ways.
Much less effort is needed in maintaining a synthetic turf cricket pitch, and this means a lot less cost. There’s less likelihood of the need for extensive repair, because it’s extremely hard wearing, and, not only that, but it’s weather-resistant, so, you’ll be able to enjoy cricket all year round without having to worry about the effects of the weather stopping play.
To summarise the benefits of choosing synthetic turf for cricket, as opposed to a real grass pitch, here’s what to expect:
- The ability to play cricket all year round
- A lot less maintenance required
- The chance to host more matches
- A guaranteed standard of play
- Appropriate surface for all abilities and ages
It might be that you love the thought of having a traditional grass cricket pitch, but unfortunately, a bit like buying a racehorse, there’s no point having a grass cricket pitch, if you don’t have the time and budget to spend on keeping it fit.
If your cricket pitch isn’t fit to play on, then, not only can that make it dangerous, but it takes away the point of having a cricket pitch or cricket nets in your school or club to start with. You might be surprised by just how effective using synthetic turf for cricket can be.
