Specialist support programme for club grounds announced by NCB

Specialist support programme for club grounds announced by NCB

The Norfolk Cricket Board, in partnership with the Norfolk Cricket Grounds Association, is delighted to announce the introduction of a 3 year funded programme designed to assist clubs with producing better quality playing pitches and outfields.

What is on offer?

Clubs signing up to the programme will receive a 2 hour visit from an ECB Pitch Advisor or local Grounds expert from the Grounds Association. This visit is designed to make an assessment of the playing pitch condition, outfield, plus the machinery stock that the club has access to.

The experts will offer advice to the club as to any recommended actions to tackle specific issues, as well as advising on a programme of works if required. A brief report will also be provided following the meeting which will assist clubs in prioritising support at committee level.

Clubs are invited to apply for support in the 2019 season. It is anticipated that a maximum of 20 clubs will receive a visit each year for three years. Initially the NCB will prioritise smaller clubs, or those that have been identified by leagues as having concerns about pitch standards.

How to get involved?

We look forward to hearing from you.
NCB, Sept 2018.
