Indoor cricket matting is essential to protect your sports hall floor from cricket balls and mats and also to deaden the rebound from a sprung sports floor to provide a rebound closer to that of an outdoor cricket wicket. This matting provides an even pace wicket with true bounce providing both batsmen and bowlers with a realistic practice playing surface.
Manufactured from green nylon carpet, the matting is available with a choice of two qualities of backing:
- Standard - with an anti-slip latex base
- Premium - with an extra heavy duty ribbed synthetic rubber backing
When you select the backing type using the dropdown menu, you will see images of the two different undersides of the matting.
The matting is supplied 2m wide and is available in the following standard lengths:
Most of our school customers find that 9m long cricket mats are perfectly adequate, but the ECB provides guidance that 11m mats should be used. Mats of any length up to 30m are available on special order - please contact us for non-standard lengths.
We strongly recommend all cricket matting is stored on a wooden creel which is available at additional cost. The images above show the cricket matting rolled onto storage creels. The creel ensures the matting is rolled properly and protected when in storage and the integral handles enable the matting plus creel to be carried easily.
