Sutton Valence School

8 Bay Winch and Wire MUGA

Sutton Valence School, known for its strong commitment to sports and cricket excellence, embarked on a mission to enhance its cricket practice facilities. The objective was crystal clear: to provide young cricketers with an advanced practice area that could replicate actual match conditions and facilitate skill development. Sutton Valence School chose Durant Cricket for the design and installation of an 8 bay Winch and Wire Cricket Practice Nets facility to fulfill these ambitious goals.

Our Approach: Durant Cricket, leveraging its extensive experience in crafting precise cricket practice systems, embraced this project with a deep dedication to excellence. The 8 bay Winch and Wire Cricket Practice Nets were carefully engineered, aiming not only to meet but to exceed the school’s high expectations.

Challenges Overcome: To ensure the facility’s robustness and longevity, we installed 2.4m high security fencing, providing both safety and durability. Leveling the system presented a unique challenge, requiring us to make up approximately 800mm of elevation difference. This intricate task was executed flawlessly.

Innovation in Design: The installation included 18 robust 4m steel structures, elegantly integrated to house the full retractable 8 bays, each with individual tunnel nets. This innovative design ensures a secure and adaptable practice area for budding cricketers.

This was more than just a construction project; it was a collaborative effort to provide Sutton Valence School with a cricket practice facility that would set new standards in skill development.

Groundworks

As a pivotal aspect of the surfacing refurbishment, the integration of advanced shock-absorption technology, featuring new 2.74 meters wide by 11 meters long batting carpets, marks a substantial upgrade. This strategic enhancement underlines the club’s steadfast dedication to player well-being and performance excellence. By cultivating an authentic and supportive practice surface, this installation empowers players to finesse their skills with heightened comfort and minimal impact. The precision-engineered shockpads, in tandem with the batting carpets, establish a secure and dynamic training environment reminiscent of professional standards, reflecting the club’s commitment to skill enhancement.

Cleaning

A pivotal facet of the refurbishment encompassed comprehensive surface cleaning, including meticulous de-weeding and a heavy-duty powerbrush treatment of the surrounding carpets and bowlers’ run-up area. This strategic approach not only rejuvenated the playing area but also showcased the club’s commitment to maintaining optimal training conditions. The careful removal of debris, coupled with specialized cleaning techniques, revitalized the cricket system, ensuring a pristine practice environment that aligns with player expectations and performance excellence.

Netting

A fundamental phase of the project encompassed the integration of advanced netting solutions, including the installation of new 3mm netting, batting screens, and vermin skirts. This strategic enhancement not only improved ball containment but also demonstrated the club’s commitment to player safety and optimal gameplay conditions. The introduction of 3mm netting ensures effective ball control, offering players a more immersive and focused practice experience.
