Durham Cricket Groundstaff Courses

We offer both accredited and non-accredited groundstaff courses prior, during and after the season.

Non-accredited “Introduction to Groundsmanship”

This is a two-hour course delivered very informally with a view of giving some basic guidance to anyone wanting to help out at their local club.

Accredited Groudstaff Courses

The ECB have teamed up with The Institute of Groundsmanship to provide a programme of progressive training courses for the management of cricket pitches.

The scheme consists of three levels of structured training offered in four courses (or combined in a single five-day course):

Level One

Part A – Spring Preparation and Summer Maintenance (1 day)
Part B – Autumn Renovation and Winter Maintenance (1 day)

Level Two

Understanding the Science (2 days)
Level Three
Sports Turf Management (2 days)

*Please note that we don’t have any courses currently available.

Our groundstaff courses run from mid-May – early April. For booking information, keep an eye on this section closer to the time.
