Our website partner, ACS Cricket Equipment, offered cricket clubs a chance to win a vital piece of grounds equipment.
The new ACS Cricket Water Collector will be invaluable in helping to get games on and remove water from the square and outfield – and we have one to give away!
Made from galvanised metal with a powder coat finish, there is a sponge attached via velcro to make them easy to replace.
The 50-litre tank collects surface water in seconds – making this a fast way to get any ground ready for more cricket. It’s simple to release the water at the back when you’re full and off the pitch.
Whether it’s before or during a league game, cup final or a friendly, the ACS Water Collector is a must-have. It’s an investment that will last for years.
For use on grass, artificial surfaces and flat sheets, this piece of kit has been trialled in club cricket over the past year and even used by Richard Robinson’s team at Headingley for that very wet Ashes Test!
David Hodgson, groundsman at Kirkstall Educational CC has been testing the ACS product:
“This machine is designed to last and all components are replaceable. No messing around scraping worn foam off for hours and no glue to deal with. They are affordable and the original design has been in service for years so they are well tried and tested. After last year’s wet summer maybe it’s time to invest in this Yorkshire-built machine?”
Last but not least is to highlight the blockbuster price.
If your club wins our competition, lucky you!
If not and you’d like to buy one then at £575 plus VAT, it’s many hundreds of pounds less than other cricket pitch drum water collectors out there.
When it comes to cricket pitch water removal, I think I’ve seen it all. From towels on the ground to hand-held sponges but ultimately, it’s about time and efficiency.
The competition closed on Sunday 11 February 2024 at midnight. It was open to all UK cricket clubs.
The winning cricket club will be chosen at random and we’ll announce the winner on our social media platforms – and let all entrants know too.
Don’t miss out… this is a vital bit of kit for any cricket ground and a generous prize from ACS Cricket Equipment.
