State of the Courts

April 2021: A heavy fertiliser drop followed by several cuts and the courts are back to playing standard. Maybe not quite as good as last year but with the potential to be better with more maintenance.


2020

23 December: Torrential rain caused flash flooding across the cricket grounds leaving the container and shed 18" underwater. We have lost some bags of fertiliser even though they were stored on pallets. Rain continued off and on until end February when the courts started to dry out. Fortunately the courts have recovered well with little permanent damage.

February: State of the courts is well documented under NEWS page. Suffice to say that this is the longest period when we have been unable to play because of the weather. At last the winter court is now drying out.


12 April 2019: Courts are well ahead of last year due to much dry weather and a good top dressing of nitrogen as fertilize. This has made the grass grow very quickly subsequently requiring 2 cuts per week. Lucas our groundsman usually cuts on a Tuesday weather permitting and club members cut if necessary again on Friday or Saturday.


The winter court is looking exceptionally good compared with last year thanks to routine cutting.

The main courts are also looking in very good condition. The cracks from last year have all closed up, the roots are thickening up but we have seen little advantage from the wetting agent applied last year.
