Cricket is one of the most fast-paced sports on the planet, with bowlers delivering balls at over 90 mph.  Players also regularly sprint between the stumps, scuffing the surface. Cricket wickets need to be well-maintained to ensure the pace and bounce of the ball isn’t impaired over time.


We are the preferred cricket pitch construction and installation experts for many familiar names. SISGrass, our revolutionary technology, is already being installed at a number of prestigious grounds:

  • ECB National Performance Centre Practice & Main Pitch
  • Worcester – 1 Practice Pitch
  • Edgbaston  – 1 Practice Pitch
  • The Oval2 Practice Pitches
  • Lord’s Stadium2 Practice Pitches
  • Old Trafford Cricket Ground – 2 Practice Pitches
  • Trent Bridge Nottingham – 2 Main Pitches & 1 Practice Pitch

The ECB WERE the first to install SISGrass HYBRID technology

The ECB (English Cricket Board) were the first to have a cricket pitch installation using SISGrass technology at the prestigious National Cricket Performance Centre in Loughborough. They have now approved hybrid cricket pitches for use in the Royal London One Day Cup, Vitality Blast and all formats of second XI cricket for the 2019 season.

“One of the key remits of my role is to constantly seek out innovative developments across the industry and all codes of sport and to see what can be transferred to the stand alone, heavy clay rootzones of cricket pitches.

“SIS Pitches have demonstrated their willingness through imaginative foresight, attention to detail and technological development towards converting a notion into reality which through the ongoing research since conception.

“This product has the potential to be a real gamechanger for the future of cricket, particularly in the lucrative, limited over, whiteball form of the game through increased usage and possible freeing up of central TV pitches, most importantly, without sacrificing quality over quantity.

“At ECB we are delighted with the incredibly positive results of these stitched, reinforced hybrid pitches to date and feedback from County Clubs has been most profound and encouraging.

“From the initial installation at the NCPC at Loughborough, it has been a pleasure to work in partnership with SIS Pitches and in particular with Phil Blackwell and his team who have been outstanding in pushing the boundaries of utilising the technology and we look forward to ongoing, future projects together.

“It’s an exciting prospect.” 

Chris Wood, ECB’s Pitches Consultant

“Building on the excellent work of Tim Packwood, the Worcestershire groundsman, it looks as if the surfaces last longer and come back quicker.”

Gary Barwell, Warwickshire Groundsman


SISGrass cricket pitches are made up of 95 percent natural grass and 5 per cent two-tone polyethylene yarn. In football, that has led to considerable improvements in surface performance. Our SISGrass system has been used at 6 out of 12 World Football Cup stadiums in Russia.

We install SISGrass with a two green or straw-coloured yarn to make natural turf cricket wicket look as authentic as possible. And from a spectating distance, they are almost impossible to differentiate visually from a fully grass surface. The fibres are injected at 2cm x2cm at 9cm below the surface level, and up to 1cm above the surface.  The potential advantages this could bring to cricket matches are incredible. SISGrass can increase the durability of the pitches to extend match play and practice sessions.


SISGrass Universal is an extremely mobile, versatile machine at just 1.20m wide, 2m in length and an installation width of 80cm. It offers the flexibility of stitching at every location quickly and accurately, with different depths, spacing or size using precise laser guidance. It’s an ideal solution for cricket grounds challenged to maintain uniform grass coverage on high-used wickets.

SISGrass Universal can do both SISGrass (18cm depth) and SISGrass Lite (9cm depth) depending on the surface construction and age, opting to stitch shallower to well established and consolidated pitches.
