Holding down indoor mats
« on: October 08, 2017, 12:42:14 PM »

So the norm seems to be use duct or gaffer tape to hold town the ends of a cricket mat. But it never seems to work!

Is there double width tape anywhere? Or a way that holds down the ends properly?

As a temporary measure or permanently?

I get some decent tape from work, always a chew though as the roll end always springs up!

Thats why i was thinking double width would work? But it seems expensive so maybe a couple of rolls

Double sided tape on edge if matt(underneath obviously)  then duck tap over the top.


Also try to get the sports centre to rotate how they. Roll the Matts. Couple Of weeks one way, then next couple roll it the opposite way.

This stops the Matts from Constantly wanting to roll back up, as they don't hold as much memory of being rolled up if rotated properly

No idea if that was explained well at all.
