Why use an Artificial Cricket Pitch?
Artificial surfaces offer realistic play with significantly lower maintenance costs than a natural grass wicket. The three main types of artificial cricket pitch surface are woven, tufted and needlepunch and because we manufacture all three of these surfaces, we are the only supplier able to offer impartial advice, but we strongly recommend a woven surface for cricket.
The reasons we recommend a woven surface are:
- Strength - Tensile strength tests have shown that woven surfaces stand up better to continued use. This means that in high use areas, they are considerably less likely to stretch.
- Drainage - The natural porosity of the woven material lends itself better to quick, effective drainage. However, our Tufted surfaces have holes punching in to the backing to improve drainage.
- Resistance to spikes - When spikes are used, the construction of a woven surface means that it will puncture to contain the impact from the spike, whereas a tufted surface comes with a much higher risk of tearing.
- Durability - Tests have shown that both our woven and tufted cricket surfaces experience less than 5% wear even after 2,000 cycles.
Whilst we recommend a woven surface, we recognise the importance of budgets, so our range of cricket surfaces includes options for woven, tufted and needlepunch. Whichever surface you choose, we also recommend a shock pad is installed underneath to protect the playing surface and improve the comfort of those playing on it.
