Basseterre, St Kitts & Nevis - Tropical destinations like St. Kitts and Nevis in the West Indies are typically known for their sun-soaked beaches, turquoise waters and favourable climate. But when the rainy season hits, it’s an entirely different ball game or, in this case, cricket match.
This summer, 24 custom-sized cricket pitch covers were delivered to several sports fields around the island. More than 112,000 square feet of Raincover Plus cricket covers, finished with reinforced handles at 10-foot intervals, are helping to protect the fields from downpours that can drench natural turf and cause game delays.
One of those facilities was the Warner Park Stadium, built for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and uniquely designed to use the prevailing winds to keep spectators cool during hot weather. Pitch covers also arrived at Edgar Gilbert Sporting Complex, Sandy Point recreation grounds, St. Paul’s Sports Complex and the Conaree Playing Field, among others.
Raincover Plus is a lightweight yet durable product that is easy to both install and remove. The dual-sided mobile cricket covers in white and silver provide the best color combination for minimizing heat build-up and protecting the turf below. Additional features, such as flex crack resistance, abrasion resistance and exceptional seam strength, make these cricket ground covers an obvious choice for turf maintenance.
