New board

Post by Cantillon »

Hi I am going to lay a new pitch it will have to be stood up indoors. It will be on a board about 160 x100. Should i use use 12mm ply or 18mm mdf ?

Mine is on 15mm MDF with a 3mm Hardboard skin rough side up and a 70s cotton pitch laid on it. I has stood on end or on its side when not in use for nearly 20 years and it is still flat.
If you use 2 by 1 battens for the the side walls and attach then with countersunk screws from the base every 8-9 inches, this will hold it steady and keeps its shape.

Cheers i have an old board of 12mm ply which seems to be ok but am going to put 2 other boards around the same size underneath cross ways to accommodate a stadium but also have the option to just use the 1 board with pitch on when not wanti g to set up stadium .
