This project was funded on 03 Sep 2020!

We've obtained planning permission to build a hard-base pitch for our nets. See SDNP/20/00024/FUL . We are looking to raise the sums required to excavate, put in hard standing, and put a carpet pitch on top. Presently nets take place on the pitch which can cause damage and is not practical in wet weather.

What we'll deliver:

  • Excavate pitch and fill with sand and concrete / aggregate
  • Excavate pitch and fill with sand and concrete / aggregate
  • Carpet wicket to go over hardstanding
  • Carpet wicket to go over hardstanding

Why it's a great idea:

Ability to hold practice nets in all weathers Ability to players to practice / throwdown / 'get their eye in' in matches away from the players and spectators

Steps to get it done:

  • Construction of concrete base
  • Construction of concrete base
