To design and install a new fully enclosed non-turf practice system complete with security fence.
total-play’s response to the club’s brief was based on its tp365 ECB Approved Pitch System and comprised a 4 lane, 33m fully enclosed non-turf practice system complete with security fence and fitted with the company’s HD Protection Tunnel to provide a ‘cocoon’ of netting around each lane. A two tone carpet was fitted with white training lines to two lanes, with an integral sight screen and ducting for inclusion of a bowling machine completing the specification“We got quotes from four suppliers and found the costs to be very similar. However, we found total-play to be very helpful, knowledgeable and prompt in answering any questions we had; and we were reassured that they were the first company to achieve the ECB NTP Code of Practice quality mark. We also liked the unique design features offered by total-play’s system, including the white training lines, extra high structure and white netting to improve visibility for the batsmen.”
