    Hi guys...

    Anybody know the exact way to make an A-Grade cricket pitch,
    or know where I can find information on how to make one, please?

    I live on a farm and I want to make a few (3-5) proper pitches so I can
    train my nephews and their local team, the local pitches provided by the
    council are nothing short of pathetic and poorly maintained and aren't the
    best to teach cricket on.


    Greetz...:cool:

    No prob's mate... ;)

    It's more of a task creating an A-Grade pitch then I thought it would be,
    but it'll be fun making different types of pitches.

    And yep!, Langer does rock... :cool:

    I was thinking of getting a cricket pitch in my backyard, so I could use it with my bowling machine, but it would just cost too much and my mum didn't like the idea of putting up nets in the backyard:(
