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.
On-site to groups. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a quotation stating how many people you anticipate will attend.
Volunteer and part-time groundstaff, typically looking after local grounds, and those embarking on careers in sports turf.
