The construction of cricket wickets and outfields is a complex procedure as it is essential that the ball bounce is consistent throughout.
Chappelow Sports Turf is experienced in the construction of all kinds of cricketing surfaces from a single wicket to a complete ground.
Using specialist machinery, including laser levelling equipment, attention to detail and precision, we create cricket surfaces of the highest quality.
Using our bulk earthwork plant and machinery, which includes 360 excavators and bulldozers we can carry out a number earthmoving, ground reshaping and grading projects and operations. These include surface removal, topsoil strip, drainage installation, laser levelling and surface installation.
Natural sports turf is frequently susceptible to flooding, particularly in winter sports due to adverse weather conditions or inadequate drainage systems. This can lead to a poor or unusable playing surface.
At Chappelow Sports Turf we understand the pressures local authorities and sports clubs face to provide high quality playing surfaces 12 months a year. As specialists in sports turf drainage, with LDCA (Land Drainage Contractors Association) affiliation, we are proficient in installing reliable and effective primary and secondary drainage systems capable of dealing with the toughest weather conditions.
We are also able to carry out repairs to existing drainage systems, and if you haven’t got a drainage system but have been affected by waterlogging we aim to remove surface water as quickly and effectively as possible to return it to an acceptable playing standard.
