Case Study: Hall Grove School

4 Lane Cricket Coaching and Practice Facility

Hall Grove School occupies a beautiful parkland setting of 40 acres and is genuinely a family school, having been owned by the Graham family since it was founded in 1956. A strong ‘can do’ attitude is encouraged and developed in what is a close and happy community. Academic achievement is extremely high, and Hall Grove excels at a wide range of sports and outdoor activities which range from cricket and riding to gardening and bush craft.

The impressive new cricket coaching and practice facility represents a significant investment by the school and clearly illustrates a commitment to provide pupils with the very best resources. Measuring 36m x 16.64m and surrounded by a rolled weld mesh security fence; the area incorporates four full size pitches and an open space fielding and fitness training zone.

S&C Slatter installed the ECB-approved Notts Sport Envelope System® NG12 system as the non-turf playing surface, which includes in-laid creases markings and coaching lines. The pitches are located within a 4 lane 4m high cage and tunnel netting structure. Two power pillars are also provided adjacent to the nets for the operation of bowling machines.
