Club groundsmen are being offered a behind the scenes look at what goes into producing an international wicket this summer. On May 8 (6.30pm) they are invited to attend the Brightside Ground, Bristol to view pitch preparations for the England v Pakistan One Day International match, which takes place on Tuesday May 14.
On Tuesday July 23 the GGA is hosting a day at the Cheltenham Cricket Festival. Each club will be allocated two tickets – one of which must be used by the groundsman – for Day 3 of the County Championship match v Worcestershire. The event will be supported by Dennis and SISIS, with more details to be announced in due course.
