Hilden Grange School

New sports facilities

Some exciting changes have been taking place over the half-term break to improve sports facilities at the school:

  • A new six lane AstroTurf cricket net on the lower area of the main field
  • An AstroTurf match and practice wicket is being installed on Streetens, a six acre piece of land adjacent to the Tonbridge Cricket Club ground on which we have taken a long lease
  • Improvements to the pitches, including levelling the athletics track and 1st XI outfield

This work will really enhance cricket provision with high quality facilities.  Last year we introduced cricket as a match sport for girls and the plan is to expand cricket this year, eventually replacing rounders as the main summer team sport for girls.  The use of Streetens will also provide additional provision for others sports in the Michaelmas and Lent terms.
