Following the submission of a competitive tender, Grassform Group was chosen by Wheathampstead Cricket Club to supply and install their new natural grass cricket wicket.
The project was awarded to Grassform in early September 2010 and took just over a week to complete. It involved excavating the old 11 strip wicket which required a radical update due to raised saddles and an unpredictable, uneven surface. Specialist clay loams were imported for the new wicket and the materials were expertly installed, after being laser graded to fine tolerances.
Keith Martin from Wheathampstead Cricket Club comments: “On behalf of WCC I would like to say thanks for the excellent work carried out by Simon and his experienced team. We are very pleased with the work carried out and, weather permitting, we stand a very good chance of playing cricket on a nice flat wicket next season. The club is delighted with the result”.
Our sports pitch construction team has vast experience installing natural grass wickets and artificial cricket wickets to meet specialist surface requirements.
