Title: Mobile Practice Net
Post by: No.4 on March 13, 2018, 12:51:24 PM
Hi all, my club are in need of a new mobile cricket net after the snow has bent us beyond repair over the winter.  Iím looking to get some guidance and help from some people in the know.  Is there anything I should looking for in particular when searching? We are only in need of one being a small village club.  It also needs to be on wheels to move on and off the practice wicket.

Thanks in advance.

I'm sure they're all much of a muchness really. The lighter it is, the fewer people you'll need to move it on and off the square.

Being rust-proof is a good start.

There are some grants available through the various local cricket board, worth asking?

MAke sure that in going light you don't sacrificae strength - we got one a few yeras back that was very good to move, but it couldn't take a gust of wind!

Our small village club had the same debate and after three quotes will be going with Durant Cricket - Just waiting for ECB small grant application response
Seemed best mix of sturdy, light & price to me.
