Australian's love cricket and kids start playing the sport at a young age. McDonalds are running "Champions of Play" ads featuring young people who are good sports, as part of a national advertising campaign promoting physical activity at a young age.
We recently saw our newley installed cricket net installation at the Gillespie Cricket Centre in Adelaide featured in one of these ads. Take a look at Ashton practicing in our cricket nets below...
We will get some photos of our Gillespie Cricket Centre netting installation online soon.
We are currently in the process of making one of the largest single nets we have ever constructed.
The video below shows hand making nets for the new Jason Gillespie cricket practice centre being installed at the Ice Arena in Adelaide. When finished this will be one of Australias biggest and best indoor cricket practice centers and we are very excited to be involved in this project.
We will post photos and a video when its finished.
Below is a news report of the original Lehamnn and Gillespie centre we installed in Jamestown a number of years ago. See more of our cricket nets here http://www.advancednets.com.au/cricket-nets.html
The mining industry is one of Australia’s biggest employers with thousands of workers living and working on sites far away from home often in remote locations. Many workers will stay for weeks and months on end and aside from rolling around in the dust there isn’t much to do in the Australian Outback as you can see in the photos below!
At Advanced Nets and Ropes we were asked to design and create a netted sports system for use on mine sites in order to give workers somewhere to keep active and have fun when not working. This particular installation features artificial turf, an artificial cricket wicket and is fully enclosed sides and top by tensioned netting in order to provide an area to play indoor cricket whilst outside (the tensioned net acts similar to a wall when hit by a ball). Similar to our indoor cricket installations, entry is via a high quality zipped net door.
The finished net structure is permanent and is therefore designed to withstand all weather conditions. The netting is UV protected to the maximum level possible without degrading the quality of the net, in order to protect it against the harsh Australian sun and make it long lasting (why is this important?).
