The long awaited work on the all-weather cricket pitch at Sportpark Deutweg in Winterthur has begun. On Monday 3rd June contractors removed the existing NottsSport © pitch and began the new surface work under the relocated area.
As previously reported, cricket pitch relocation work, originally planned to take place pre-season and subsequently rescheduled for last week, had to be postponed due to torrential rain.
In a statement to Swiss Cricket, a spokesman for Winterthur Cricket Club said, "Currently it is unclear whether or not cricket will be effected for the forthcoming weekend. No SCA league or Pickwick T20 competition matches are scheduled at Sportpark Deutweg this weekend, and we are hopeful that we will get the all-clear for the juniors to practice on the newly laid surface on Saturday."
