Cricket in Lauderhill, FL


My second of two stops took me to the cricket grounds in Lauderhill, FL.  The Central Broward Regional Sports Park was constructed in 2007 and hosts a variety of events.  As you will see, during my visit part of the “outfield” was painted and prepped for soccer while the “wicket” was being prepped for a cricket game the following day.  






The clay wicket is critical for well played cricket.  Here are a couple photos of the preparation of the wicket:





The outfield surrounds the wicket and consists of 5/8 inch cut 419 bermudagrass.

The facility also has practice cricket and soccer fields to the east of the main stadium.

I must admit, this was my first visit to a cricket stadium, and I was very impressed with the facility and the attention to detail of the wicket - very similar to prepping an infield and a mound and plate area for baseball.
