Assessment not required

Of all the sports, a cricket grounds person can have the greatest effect on how a match can develop, so a basic knowledge of the game and the playing surface is essential. This is a 1-day theory course which gives an overview of all the processes, machinery and equipment required to produce and maintain a quality playing surface. The primary emphasis is on Health and Safety. No practical work takes place on the day, however time is spent out on the pitch discussing its condition and any particular challenges, based on a core soil sample taken at the time.

A 2-day course is available which incorporates practical work/demonstrations to illustrate and support the theory learning.

Available For:
