Orpington Cricket Club have replaced an old
double bay facility with a quadruple bay
surrounded by a secure perimeter fence.
Two of each base formation were installed
as 24.00m strips with Verdegrass 14
surrounds and run ups.
The period between November and March normally mean a barren period for the installation of new cricket facilities. With short days,
frost and the occasional snow works are as a rule restricted to the odd resurface project or servicing during February.
But the 2011-12 winter has bucked the norm and seen the installation of four major practice pitch projects at Orpington, Kent, Stourport
on Severn, Worcestershire, Carsons and Mangotsfield, Gloucestershire and Baxenden, Lancashire.
Stourport Cricket Club have a new
quadruple bay facility also consisting of two
of each base formation in 24.00m
continuous strips and Verdegrass 14
Carsons and Mangotsfield Cricket Club
have a triple bay with a secure perimeter
fence encompassing the bowlers run ups.
A mixture of base formations were installed
and the club had batting and bowling ends
with Verdegrass 14 surrounds and run ups.
