Cricket is one of the main sports for both boys and girls at St. George’s College Weybridge, so when the school needed to construct a new cricket facility, it was important that the new pitches be suitable for all ages and abilities, while also being capable of top-level performance to ‘fully extend our most talented performers and enable them to play at the highest possible standard’.
Who better to turn to for top-level non-turf cricket construction than S&C Slatter, in partnership with Notts Sport for over 30 years. Having proudly constructed the non-turf cricket facilities at ‘The home of cricket’ for a number of years, we were delighted to install the same non-turf cricket system we installed at Lord’s – a NottsBase D System – at St. George’s, offering students a truly elite surface on which to learn and play cricket.

Working in close collaboration with the school, the 2x non-turf pitches were specially designed for the school’s requirements and objectives. Featuring a unique design, both pitches are 4m wide (more than 1m wider than a standard pitch) to enable players to run between wickets on the non-turf surface itself, protecting the surrounding natural grass during play.
The layout of the two pitches enables simultaneous play, so that the school (and clubs that hire the pitches) can have two matches running at the same time, or allow for coaching of different abilities at the same time.
