Case Study: Ruislip Cricket Club

2 Lane Cricket Coaching and Practice Facility

Formed in 1959, ECB Clubmark certified Ruislip Cricket Club are members of the Thames Valley Cricket League running some ten teams from the under tens through to Saturday first eleven. The existing practice nets at their ground within Pinns Meadows were well past their best and so the landowner London Borough of Hillingdon issued an invitation to submit proposals for a completely new facility.

S&C Slatter was successful in preparing detailed designs and specifications for a new twin lane coaching and practice area featuring ECB-approved Notts Sport non-turf cricket pitch systems.

The 208 square metre facility has a completely synthetic surface finish, negating the need for mowing and reducing general maintenance to a minimum. It’s resistance to wear and underfoot comfort provides the optimum environment for players of all ages and abilities to practice and develop their game.

Inset into the VHAF NottsSward synthetic grass surround material, 11m x 2.74 Notts Sport Envelope System® NG12 batting ends with integral coaching lines are complemented by 8m NottsPad NG12 bowling ends. A Geogrid ground stabilisation layer has been added beneath the sub-base structure to offer enhanced load bearing performance.

From the Club recommending the initial design in conjunction with Hillingdon Borough Council (HBC) from a number of proposals supplied to HBC in the first place we have been thoroughly delighted with the end result.It was clear from the work that went into the design, proposal and survey that we had chosen the right provider in S&C Slatter. Philip’s team were diligent throughout the project to a great standard. We would certainly recommend S&C Slatter for any future works."
