Cricket facilities in Balsall Heath and Sparkhill restored

Both Sparkhill Park and Larches Green Park all weather pitches have been completely re-laid at a cost of £40,000 – or £20,000 each. Indeed, when the Sparkhill Park cricket pitch was being re-laid last night, local teenagers were queuing up to use it.

Both cricket pitches were in a terrible condition, with the Sparkhill Park pitch ripped in several places.

As well as the cricket pitches, the cricket nets in Sparkhill Park have been completely refurbished.

The money has been funded by the Council’s Local Improvement Budget, which the Leisure, Sport and Culture portfolio bid into last summer.
