Sports pitch protection - for every eventuality…
From cricket to football, rugby to tennis, sports pitch protection is key to keeping pitches fit for action. An essential part of the groundsman’s armoury, pitch protection ground covers have been developed to meet a range of objectives – from simply keeping water off the surface during a game to protecting a pitch from the elements between matches.
The Climate Cover Range has been developed by Total-Play’s team of expert groundsmen in conjunction with scientists to provide a class-leading range of sports pitch protection solutions - including the flagship Climate Cover System™. The range can be found in use at cricket, rugby, football, tennis and golf clubs at all levels across the UK; managing issues from germination and water proofing through to frost protection. The Climate Cover Range includes:
Climate Cover System™
The Climate Cover System is the lightest, strongest and only proven breathable ground cover on the market today. Designed for prolonged use on cricket pitches, its unique fabric allows light and air to pass through, protecting the pitch from rain whilst allowing vapour to escape; ensuring the grass plant continues to grow underneath. A proven pitch protection solution, the Climate Cover System™ is used at Lords, the ECB National Academy, test match grounds, county grounds, local league clubs and schools across the country.

The Rain Cover flat sheet rain cover has been designed to offer cricket clubs quick protection against rain prior to or during play. The flat sheet rain cover is strong and semi-translucent so, although a budget solution, unlike many other similar covers on the market it does allow light to reach the grass plant and enable photosynthesis. Designed for short periods of use, the flat sheet ground cover offers great value for money for cricket clubs looking for a durable pitch protection solution. More about the Rain Cover flat sheet…
TGC Total Growth Cover
The Total Growth Cover (TGC) offers frost protection and propagation in one – making it the ultimate dual-purpose pitch protection solution. total growth cover actively encourages the growth of the grass plant – acting as an insulation layer and increasing the ground surface temperature while all the time allowing air and water to circulate.
