 All weather and extremely durable

The nature of the pitch plays an important role in the actual game.
Natural pitches in Australia have traditionally been known to be good for fast bowlers because of the amount of bounce that can be generated. Swing bowling can be a weapon particularly on a dry pitch, therefore batting is considered easier on most pitches with back-foot players tending to do well.
Understanding that a synthetic cricket pitch needs to suit players of all levels, is extremely durable and will withstand all weather conditions, APT have developed a range of pitch surfaces covering the Foundation of Community Cricket.
