Thanks to generous support from the Stadt Köln and our friends at TPSK, we were able to completely replace the old uneven practice area with a brand new carpet placed on top of a flat, bouncy base. Finally CICC has a practice area where members can really hone their batting skills on a surface offering true bounce and a bit of pace!

Here’s a short photo montage of how it happened:

Paving-stone base

Rubbery matting glued onto the paving – careful to get the bubbles out!

Top layer carpet – still some bumps to stretch out and bolt down at the edge

Net cage back in place and waiting for carpet to dry
