Beige Cricket Wicket

Our beige cricket wicket is made to the same specifications as our TEST surface, using quality raw materials with the highest possible industry UV stabilisation. As does the TEST surface, this wicket gives realistic ball bounce with consistency, increasing the safety for the batsmen.

Combine our Pitch Map surface with a passionate bowler and watch as they progressively improve their bowling accuracy.

This roughened wicket provides the extra grip spinners need for maximum performance.

This cricket pitch installation is an absolute must for training facilities looking to cater for spin bowlers.

Hybrid H3 Wicket

The hybrid cricket pitch was designed and developed by Tony Hemming Head Curator of Dubai’s ICC Academy, researched by using different materials from other sporting codes and native cricket soils from around the world.

It gives the cricketer the same variation depending on moisture in the soil, which allows for a more natural bounce, seam, and spin of a pitch. It is also much easier to maintain for the groundsmen, and pitch installation time is reduced to one day. Foot holes are barely in need of repair.

Sports Netting and Surface

Our Hybrid H3 wicket combines the qualities of a natural and a synthetic pitch. This innovative design uses a high-quality synthetic grass filled with natural soil, smoothed to below the level of the pile height. The result is a low maintenance surface that is fast to prepare, but responds to changes in the moisture content in the soil, allowing the Bounce, Seam and Spin of a natural pitch.

The variations mimicked by this wicket are very similar to the spin-friendly pitches prepared in the subcontinent. Installed in the Bupa National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, this wicket has been used by the Australian team in preparations for campaigns overseas.

Prototype Profile

Reducing cricket pitch installation time to just one day, the hybrid H3 wicket not only offers cricketers a practice environment that accurately simulates variations in bounce, seam, and spin, akin to the effects of moisture in the soil. Its innovative design also minimizes the need for repairing foot holes, making it easier for groundsmen to maintain the facility.
