The Structure

Cricket Shield by total-play Ltd

No more rain stops play – the total-play ‘Cricket Shield’ takes outdoor nets to the next level!

A climate protection system for outdoor cricket facilities.

The ‘Cricket Shield’ bridges the gap between a traditional outdoor system and an indoor centre.

Protecting from wet and windy conditions whilst encouraging air flow and maintaining a comfortable temperature. The ‘Cricket Shield’ offers clubs, schools and centres of excellence the chance to increase usage levels of a typical outdoor non-turf facility without the prohibitive costs of a permanent building.

To develop this ground-breaking new product, the total-play team has drawn on its unique insight into the needs of cricketers and market-leading experience in designing and installing ECB Approved non-turf pitch systems.

A state-of-the-art £1.5million, 10-bay all-weather cricket dome has been officially opened in Bradford Park Avenue. Read more about this on the Official ECB website below.
