Knox Grammar sets about improving our young cricketers!
Sydney’s Knox Grammar School is the latest client to benefit from a sprinkling of Polytan magic, with the restoration of their new cricket practice wickets.
Years of dry weather, heavy foot traffic and general neglect had left the school’s practice wickets looking more than a little forlorn – so we were tasked with a complete reconstruction of the existing us one the way back after he Ashes disaster.
New concrete slabs were poured, to create a stable base for the top level of synthetic grass and quality SuperGrasse Shield cricket wicket surfacing installed. In addition LigaTurf, complete with rubber cushioned infill, was installed for the bowler runups pad to match the look of the surrounding natural grass pitch.
New netting was installed to divide the area into five separate cricket wickets for the College budding batsman and bowlers.
Despite weather and other challenges we are happy to report that the project was nevertheless delivered within the tight deadline!
