Practice Turf Maintenance and Footwear



Maintenance Recommendations for Practice Turf Cricket Pitches

The system is designed to require little or no maintenance other than:


  • Occasional sweeping to remove grass cuttings and other debris from the playing surface.
  • Application of weed and/or moss killer as required.
  • Re-marking creases as required using acrylic emulsion or other suitable water based line paint.

Important Note on the Use of Spiked Footwear

Spikes worn by the bowlers are always a problem for non-turf wickets because of the damage done by the bowlers' spikes when they turn off the wicket after delivering the ball.


Although our products use a high tuft density to help prevent spikes reaching and damaging the backing, it is impossible to completely prevent spikes from tearing the surface.


For this reason our customers are advised that spikes should not be worn.


If they are used, the life of the playing surface and the underlay will be reduced.


If it is likely that spikes may be used, sportsequip.co.uk recommends infilling the carpet pile in the bowlers delivery area with fine loam or sand to reduce possible damage and wear.
