For clubs and schools that don't have the budget – or space – for a brand new, state-of-the-art practice net facility but want to step up their training ahead of the 2013 cricket season, a portable batting cage could be just the ticket.
And now could be the ideal time to invest, with a very tempting offer on the table from thecricketgroundshop.co.uk, the sole online outlet for cricket specialist total-play Ltd's range of products.
For an all-in price of just £1,999 which includes VAT and delivery, your club could reap the benefits of a total-play portable batting cage system. From the team behind a range on non-turf surfaces that includes the ECB approved tp365 design and the state-of-the-art "˜Protection Tunnel' netting system, this cage has been designed by cricketers, for cricketers.
The totally portable galvanised steel structure is suitable for use on both non-turf and natural surfaces; giving any wicket or grass area the potential of becoming a practice area.
Measuring 7.5m long by 3.65m wide and 3.5m high the cage has extra height to help prevent slower bowlers hitting the roof and carries a 12-year warranty on the steelwork. It has been designed to be easy for one person to manoeuvre and is supplied in flat pack form along with a one-piece piece net system including roof net & side walls in either black or green netting.
James Coney, Business Development Manager at total-play says: "At this time of year clubs are looking forward to the 2013 playing season and, while it's probably too late to raise the funding necessary for a full-blown permanent practice facility, portable batting cages can provide a handy quick-fix solution. We've decided to give clubs a helping hand as we have several cages in stock and ready for immediate delivery, which can be purchased for just £1,999 including VAT and delivery – a saving of over £200 on the usual price. In short, clubs could have a perfectly serviceable new practice area for a fraction of the cost they'd expect well in time for the new season."
Alongside batting cages, thecricketgroundshop.co.uk offers a comprehensive range of products of the highest quality; including cricket pitch covers, non-turf cricket pitch supplies, pitchcare products, cricket netting and many more cricket ground essentials. It is also the exclusive online outlet for Climate Cover pitch covers, including the Climate Cover Systemâ„¢ - the lightest, strongest, breathable ground cover solution – and the total-play Ltd range on non-turf pitch systems and components.
