Case Study: Wellington College (Cricket)

8 Lane Cricket Coaching and Practice Facility

Wellington College is renowned for sporting excellence with cricket the major summer sport and enjoyed by both boys and girls. The college regularly fields fifteen teams on Saturdays playing to a highly competitive standard.

Coaching and the development of correct technique is given the highest importance and is delivered to an outstanding standard by a holistic training programme.

S&C Slatter has a long term relationship with Wellington College and has completed the construction of an extremely impressive new 8 lane coaching and practice area. The new build facility is nearby an existing 6 lane practice area which previously underwent an extensive reconstruction again by S&C Slatter.

The new 8 lane facility features the ECB-approved Notts Sport NottsBase® D System installed to the entire 29.88m x 25.90m footprint in contrasting shades of green artificial turf. An eight lane 3.66m high cage and netting structure to ECB recommendations completes the scheme and helps to ensure that the facility is accessible and safe in use.
