Prior to the season beginning (March and April).and the first pitch being prepared, it is important to ensure that the square is indeed square and that the individual pitch positions are marked out and are 22 yards in length in order to establish the true stump lines.

This should be done using a 3,4,5 triangle or multiples of those numbers (i.e., 30, 40, 50. 66ft, 88ft, 110ft works well). The larger the measurements the more accurate you can be. The equipment needed will be two 50m tapes, pegs, string lines and marking material.

The aim is to establish four corner pegs 66ft (23.12m) apart down the length of a pitch and 10ft (3.05) across the line of play for each pitch on the square.

Benefits

• Take time to get this right as it will save time during the season.
• Ensures that all marked lines and pitches are parallel to each other
• Sets out all the pitches for the season
• Good practice for planning the use of all pitches

Practical Tips

• Ensure the tapes, strings and pegs are in good condition as cloth tapes stretch over time
• This job is best carried out with two people
• Use a weak solution of marking paint when marking arcs etc. The true positions can be marked in using a stronger solution once everything is correct.
• Periodically check the correct distances are being maintained through the season.
• Consider the use of permanent markers for the corners of the square, or even for individual pitch positions.
