As a former first-class cricketer with a country background, SimTurf is a revolutionary cricket playing surface that provides players with all levels an opportunity to play on a surface that best simulates turf conditions without the cost and time of preparation that is a real barrier for regional clubs and associations. When bowling on the surface, it was noticeable that the batters had more trouble than on a standard synthetic wicket, with the ball slightly moving and holding in the pitch a bit longer. I felt I had more of an opportunity as a bowler playing on this surface.
SimTurf is an innovative product that can replicate playing on turf cricket pitches, without the need for any cricket pitch preparation costs and time for volunteers in clubs and schools. As this surface is installed on concrete slabs, the required infrastructure is often existing, allowing an easy upgrade. The surface itself provides variation for bowlers & it isn’t as skiddy as traditional synthetic
Having received feedback from the playing group the SimTurf practice wickets are providing a realistic experience that normal synthetic wickets haven’t provided before and something both batters and bowlers have been enjoying
