Batting Cage & Sightscreen
« on: January 29, 2018, 07:33:40 PM »

Hoping for a little advice & maybe pointing in the right direction.

Our club has agreed that the two big purchases this year will be a new sightscreen and a mobile batting cage.

I know about 3D sports from countless brochures as a youngster - but where else is good to look?

Whilst Im asking - how would I source a flicx pitch at a more reasonable price than extortionate?

Thanks

Check out 3d sports.

We got a grant and for sight screens the roll up for around 1,500.

Do we notice ....no but some some do..

Easy assembly and they just roll up!

Best way to get sight screens is to apply for a Sports England Small Grant, we use the scheme to acquire a set of sight screen from Stuart Canvas.  At the same time we purchased a set of covers from, they gave us a good deal

Jake from Vitas now works at Durrant and were on the verge of purchasing 2 new sightscreens for the season. Durrant are now running a scheme where they come with a years free insurance in the event they get damaged or vandalised.

Worth giving him a call to check prices as they were v similar to 3D from memory.

Feel free to contact us at Durant Cricket for details, as Tom mentioned we are offering 1 years free insurance on screens and cages. We also manufacture, deliver and install everything ourselves, which can't be said for some of the competition mentioned in this topic :)
