Cricket Pitch Maintenance  
A guide to Cricket Pitch Maintenance from the Institute of Groundmanship

Article Content:

Cricket is typically played on a grass pitch (often a rectangular shape) and will have a various number of
pitch positions.

The length of an adult pitch is 20.12m (22 yards), whilst a 'typical' pitch might be 24m
(length) x 30m (width).

The playing season can generally be from the middle of April to September, depending upon which
league it is.


A cricket pitch should ideally be

• even throughout, with no undulations or depressions;
• well consolidated, giving good and appropriate ball bounce;
• covered with a dense sward of desirable grasses that have good root density and depth;

In addition, a well-prepared pitch should ideally be able to withstand the equivalent of three, five-hour

To ensure that a cricket pitch is maintained correctly, not only during the playing season but also
throughout the whole of the year, a number of individual performance standards are likely to be set.

The combination of these standards determines the overall quality of the cricket pitch.
