Description

Professional Grade Non-Turf Cricket Practice Matting For Clubs & Schools

Introducing the innovative FORTRESS Club Spec cricket matting with built-in surround, available in three contrasting options: Green with Blue surround, Green with White stump lines and Blue surround, and Brown with Green surround. Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, this artificial tufted carpet features a 2.74m (9ft) wide wicket with a 0.63m (2ft) distinctive border, enhancing the effectiveness of batting and bowling drills. Its innovative design ensures consistent ball bounce, spin, and superb grip, akin to a natural turf wicket, making it an essential training aid for cricketers of all levels and ages. Crafted with UV-stabilized materials and reinforced stitching for durability, it improves visibility and adds a modern touch to your training space.

Why Choose FORTRESS Club Spec Cricket Matting With Built-In Surround?

Outstanding Ball Spin & Consistent Bounce

Expertly engineered to mimic the feel of natural grass wickets, this 10mm-thick tufted carpet, when paired with our 6mm shock padding underlay, delivers consistent ball bounce. The club standard matting boasts an increased yarn density of 75,600 stitches per square meter, enhancing ball grip and making it perfect for spin bowling practices.

Distinctive Surround

The distinctive 0.63m (2ft) wide border feature in our cricket matting serves a practical purpose by clearly delineating the traditional wicket area from the broader pitch, especially helpful in both fixed and mobile net setups. The matting is available in three contrasting colour options: Green with Blue surround, Green with White stump lines and Blue surround, and Brown with Green surround. This innovative design enhances safety training efficiency and contributes to overall facility improvement.

Full Weather Resistance

Manufactured with UV-resistant ultra-high-density polyethylene (HDPE) yarn, this cricket pitch mat guarantees durability over time. Its rot-resistant properties make it perfectly suitable for both indoor and outdoor cricket settings. The cross-linked net-cloth backing, bonded with SBR, provides additional security for the yarn, ensuring prolonged durability even under heavy use.

5-Year Warranty & Expected 10-Year Lifespan

This FORTRESS Club Spec Cricket Matting comes with a 5-year warranty and is built to last, with an expected lifespan of up to 7-10 years, depending on proper installation, maintenance, and usage conditions.

Consistent Performance

These club-spec cricket mats are designed to maintain their integrity and performance over time. Unlike other artificial carpets that often lose ball grip and bounce over time due to flattened or one-directional grass blades, our matting uses multi-directional pre-curled yarn. This feature prevents flattening and ensures optimal bounce and spin, maintaining performance even after years of use.

Optional Shockpad/Underlay Upgrade

Improve your cricket training setting and overall playing experience by adding the 6mm FORTRESS shockpad beneath the matting. This optional underlay effectively absorbs foot traffic and ball impacts, thereby prolonging the matting's durability and ensuring a safer, more comfortable playing surface. Moreover, it significantly improves ball bounce, closely replicating the natural feel of a turf wicket, for an enhanced training and playing experience.

Installation Recommendations

For the best results, consider these 2 subbase types to be applied under FORTRESS Cricket Matting with Built-In Surround:

Aggregate/Dynamic Base:

According to ECB recommendations, this subbase type offers optimal ball bounce and efficient water drainage compared to concrete bases. Build a 50mm bottom layer with limestone or granite (MOT Type 1), add a 100gsm or higher weed control fabric in the middle, and top with 6mm granite dust or sand. We recommend using a timber frame edge border to accommodate all these materials, particularly for installations with multiple practice lanes. Following this, securely fasten the FORTRESS Shockpad Underlay and cricket pitch matting using nails or screws to ensure a stable and durable setup.

Concrete/Tarmac Base

This cost-effective and durable base is easy to set up using recycled materials. Although higher ball bounce may be an issue for expert players, it is suitable for schools and home setups. Fill a 25–50mm bottom layer with sand or crushed stone, add a 100gsm weed control fabric, and top with 50–100mm of concrete or tarmac. Tarmac offers better drainage and a softer ball bounce. Consider using a timber frame edge border for this type of subbase as well. Secure the shockpad underlay and the club spec cricket carpet with nails, screws, or matting glue for extra stability.

Maintenance Advice

Regular maintenance involves cleaning with water, a firm brush, and specialized moss cleaning agents to prolong the carpet's lifespan and maintain consistent ball performance over time.
