High-Quality Cricket Pitch Covers | total-play

In the world of cricket, where the sound of leather meeting the willow can spark a wave of excitement and anticipation among spectators, one crucial element silently yet gloriously takes centre stage: cricket pitch covers. 

This unsung and mighty hero emerges to shield the hallowed ground from nature’s unpredictability whilst preventing waterlogging, ensuring the pitch is ready to play on, whenever needed.

Not only do cricket pitch covers improve the playing surface by covering the entire cricket pitch length, but they also help keep grounds protected during even the most unpredictable of British weather. However, as technology advances and the demands of the sport evolves, there is an increasing need to redefine cricket pitch covers in order to meet the changing requirements of modern cricket. 

For instance, total-play’s Climate Cover System™ is designed to provide the lightest and strongest waterproof protection, making us a market leader for over two decades. 

In this blog, we will explore how the Climate Cover System  has redefined cricket pitch protection. In addition to this, we will also explore our Rain Cover system and TGC germination cover;which have pushed the envelope of creativity when it comes to cricket pitch covers. 

Evolution Of Cricket Pitch Covers 

Over the past few years, we have witnessed a phenomenal transformation with regard to cricket pitch covers. Traditionally designed to protect cricket pitches from heavy rain and waterlogging, these covers were made with heavy-duty, water-resistant material such as tarpaulin. 

However, these required significant manual labour to install and remove. Moreover, they are heavy to carry and posed several logistical challenges – especially for matches that were fast-paced and required quick turnarounds.  

Thanks to the advancement in materials and innovative engineering techniques, there has been a significant development in cricket pitch covers. These were specifically designed to overcome the limitations that were posed by traditional designs. 

With modern cricket pitch covers, you can expect them to be far more lightweight and durable, and are manufactured with highly-efficient materials that offer superior protection against downpours. You might even find features such as enhanced heat insulation and the ability to control moisture levels in advanced cricket pitch covers.

No wonder these have been popular performers among cricket enthusiasts. By setting the highest standards possible, Climate Cover System™ has been the market leader for over 20 years. 

Offering a sliding scale three years warranty, these covers were born due to dissatisfaction with the existing products that were available. In fact, total-play’s Climate Cover System™ is specifically designed to help ground staff members produce the highest quality surface, thereby maximising performance. Thanks to optional inflatable deployment tubes, it can cover large areas easily with the use of minimum labour whilst ensuring utmost safety.

A popular contribution towards redefining cricket pitch covers has been the TGC frost and germination covers. These offer frost protection during harsh winter conditions.

In addition to this, it is equipped with multi-layer configurations that offer play-ready surfaces for your team.
