The majority of works have been completed. The weather is too cold to install the synthetic matting (the matting may not adhere to the concrete in cold weather). This will be installed in September/October. Thank you for your patience.
Works are underway at the Acton Recreation Ground oval to replace the cricket pitch with a new compliant standard pitch complete with synthetic matting on the pitch surface.
Works include the removal of the existing pitch and replacement with a new wider pitch oriented north - south to improve the safety of play with regard to the ground aspect and afternoon sun, and will bring the ground up to contemporary Australian Standards for regional cricket.
The works are 50% funded by a grant from Cricket Tasmania, and will benefit cricket along the coast including for Burnie Cricket League and Cricket North West players.
The pitch changes will facilitate the ongoing development of junior and women’s cricket and will also be available for general public use.
