DEM Sports, a company specialising in cricket equipment, has partnered with Essex based engineering firm Gratnells Engineering to create an updated version of its Concertina Cricket Net and Multi-Sport Foldaway System.

Billed as 'unique fold away, space saving systems', the nets are intended primarily for use in clubs, schools and universities with limited space and are designed to promote the sport at a grassroots level, particularly in schools, to get more children involved with the game.

Available in three sizes the Concertina Cricket Net can be affixed to a wall or fence post and can be fully extended to eight, 10 or 12 m, and folded away to just 50 cm, while the Multi Sport net meaures 10m x 6m and folds back to 82cm. Both nets feature laser cut, powder coated metal posts, produced by Gratnells, encased in a protective foam.

In addition to creating the metal framework for the nets, Gratnells, a specialist in bespoke metal work, laser cutting and powder coating, worked with DEM Sports to refine the original designs.

Anthony Byrne, product manager at Gratnells, says: "Gratnells has a long history of supporting ideas that aim to help children succeed. We were delighted to work on refining this DEM Sports equipment potential to unlock inner city play spaces and combat obesity. We look forward to seeing the nets being used by children all over the UK soon."
