Hi, can anybody tell me the difficulty involved in relocating a cricket wicket table. can this be done reasonably intact, or is it better to start from scratch??

how far do u want to move it?
20mtrs or to another site?
Personally start from scratch.

probably about 1 km up the road.
Just a cost factor. Cricket club club with no council assistance, well more hinderance, hence the move. I had heard of it being done, but no facts, just heard. Our only other choice may be to return to the carpet, and would prefer not to do that.

Sounds like a night mare Anonymous.
I'm interested to hear what the process would be?
Do you just sod cut up the turf, then dig out the clay with a digger?
Then what dump it all back in new table on the new oval role it all again then whack the turf down?
I know they have these drop in systems now at the G extra. But what do clubs do in this situation?

im guessing what u just said keep it sharp is spot on, how else would it be done cheaper??????

Pretty much the idea. Kind of like that done with drop-in wickets.
Although.... binding the sections back together could cause unwanted and un-natural cracking.
Probably cheaper and produce a better long term result to remove the turf then the clay then take the materials over to the new site and re-build
