Cricket Pitch Watering

In very dry weather it is difficult to ensure that the cricket square and outfield recover from the damage caused by frequent matches. Temporary or permanently installed cricket pitch irrigation systems can promote re-growth.

Permanent Cricket Pitch Watering Systems

Permanent cricket irrigation systems consist of underground pipes bringing water to pop-up sports sprinklers located in the playing surface of the cricket pitch. These are designed to water the cricket square, however the sprinklers can be put on 360 degree mode to add water to the outfield.

Water is supplied from a break tank and pump unit. If this is located near to a roof structure, recycled rainwater can be used – keeping the watering costs down but increasing the initial costs as larger tanks are required to store the rainwater for use in the Summer.

Temporary Cricket Pitch Irrigation Systems

For temporary cricket pitch watering systems, sprinklers on risers can be used. A set of 3 sprinklers will water a strip 10m wide and 30m long. These are placed out on the square and left for a number of hours, then moved along the square. If the pressure and flows are good, water may be supplied from a standpipe. For poor quality supplies, water can be supplied from a water storage tank and pump unit.
