While building new premises Jonathan Smith decided to build a state of the art indoor cricket lane at his business JMS Sport UK in Keighley, West Yorkshire
Cricket surface’s top requirement is a non directional pile characteristic and no infill. The most popular surface recommended for cricket is a woven product which provides a professional standard, but Playrite’s needlepunch products can provide an economical choice for many different levels of performance. In order to minimise ball bounce and prolong consistency a shockpad is recommended for some cricket facilities.
Playrite artificial cricket wickets and cricket pitches are used all over the world and are made with some of the best fibres available. Used in all levels of the game, Playrite offers a wide range of high quality artificial surfaces, woven, needlepunch and tufted, tailored specifically for cricket.
The selected products by JMS Sport were Practice Play Junior and Matchplay I, dedicated cricket products manufactured in the UK.
This unique facility in the centre of West Yorkshire offers both the opportunity for groups or individuals to practice with either bowling machine or standard bowling. The facility is also designed to allow two different surfaces to be used at once in tandem at each end, allowing for increased playing opportunities.
