ECB Approved Design Non-Turf Pitch (NTP)

Typically seen on the edge of a natural cricket table, artificial non-turf Match Pitches provide a playing surface in even the worst climatic conditions, whilst also helping relieve the burden on the natural strips. A good quality artificial surface dramatically increases usage for both matches and practise sessions.

Our range of ECB Approved non-turf pitch designs have been developed to provide a balanced game between bat and ball whilst encouraging the spinner. The result: a safe and consistent artificial surface for cricket matches and practice sessions – all year round.

And the benefits don’t end there – ultra-low maintenance, with no rolling or watering, non-turf pitches are an invaluable resource for all cricket grounds, schools, cricketers and groundsmen. They can be positioned to suit individual requirements and are installed to create a safe, undisturbed playing area built to club & recreational dimensions of 30 m x 2.74m.

When developing the non-turf match pitch, we have considered every aspect of the game. Our choice of six ECB approved pitch systems include the flagship tp365 ECB Approved Design System, and offer solutions for a range of site conditions and budgets.

Existing Non-Turf Match Pitches – Refurbishment/Renovation

total-play can also help breathe life back into existing non-turf match pitches in need of renovation.

Our experienced in-house team regularly carries refurbishment of worn systems; removing old carpets, re-levelling and compacting the existing sub-base then installing up-date modern shock pads and playing surface carpets, to achieve a huge improvement in performance for a fraction of the cost of installing a brand-new match pitch.
