Work had been due to start in February but the wet winter led to
the site being saturated and therefore delayed.
Even when work began further storms flooded the area and led
to pulling off site for a week.
Back in 2011 Tarleton Cricket Club first made contact regarding a proposed double bay cricket
facility. After a number of set backs and rethinks over the scope of the project the club finally
managed to get funding together for their original plan.
Having sought proposals from various companies and viewing installations the club appointed
Verde Sports Cricket Ltd to install a facility with a Premier and Test Match system batting ends,
bowling ends and surround surfacing extending to a total length of 30.00m.
Once back on site things moved on rapidly and the
bases were completed.
Surfaces were laid and the
netting erected with the club
members waiting with pads on
as the finishing touches were
put to the facility. The nets
were formally opened by
Simon Kerrigan, Lancashire
Cricket Club on Friday 25th
installations. The bounce on the wickets
us consistent and every team that’s been
this year has remarked on how great the
ground looks with the nets installed”
