drop-in cricket pitch

The Drop-in Cricket Pitch revolutionised how summer and winter sports can be held on major sporting stadiums. The entire cricket pitch sits inside a metal tray. To switch between cricket and football, the cricket pitch tray is swapped for a tray holding football growing profile and turf. The field can be used immediately after the trays are exchanged. Trays that are not being used are maintained and prepared in a nursery site. The wickets are moved with the StrathAyr TransportAyr machine which minimises damage to the outfield and is operated by grounds staff.
