total-play work with a leading designer and installer of ball-stop netting.
The requirement for cricket grounds to protect neighbouring houses and the public from a well-struck balls is essential. Every cricket club must consider the Health & Safety risks of ‘Ball Strikes’. Many cricket grounds have roads, paths, houses or playgrounds within range of a ball leaving the playing area.
The team at total-play can complete an initial desktop assessment of the ground and then advise on any further action. Many grounds may need an independent ball strike risk assessment completed by an approved third party. Once the height of the ball stop netting is known, the total-play team can advise of the best type of ball stop netting system.
