Indoor tension cages are design to create a complete enclosure including roof netting. This allows a secure area where indoor cricket matches can be played. The netting itself is made using diamond mesh and is under tension via springs attached to secure points in the roof structure. Careful planning is required to ensure main fixing points are strong enough to take the loads. Indoor cricket is a “fierce” game and netting is put under a great deal of stress. “Gate” entrances can be incorporated for access with removal panels to allow beer access when required.
Tension cricket net cages are available in green or white and are made to a standard regulation size of 30m x 11m x 4.5m, although other sizes are available to fit a specific indoor layout.

From Indoor Cricket World
So, here is the true story: Indoor cricket was the brainchild of a couple of blokes (whom I shall name later, if they agree) from Perth (Western Australia), and the first games were played in the 1970’s. It did not come from Germany. Indoor Cricket experienced rapid growth up until the early 1990s (the 1996 Sports Census showed indoor cricket to be the fifth most popular of all sports, in terms of total number of registered players, with 35% more registered players than outdoor cricket). Sad to say, at the grassroots level it has declined in participation rates since those heady days, although the international elite level of the game, manifest through the Indoor Cricket World Cup, has expanded to include exciting new teams like Singapore and India. That tournament is played around the world, but at the local suburban centre level the game is wanting a tad in comparison to its earlier heady heights.
Like Indoor Cricket itself, this site is not mainly about the elite players and their competitions. Both experienced players and those unfamiliar with indoor cricket will find all they need to know in the coming pages: from descriptions and explanations of the game, through the setting up of playing courts and playing equipment used, to basic game strategies, and complete rules and tips for players and umpires. We also have interviews with established Indoor Cricket personalities. And we are particularly proud to feature the most extensive library of photographs of Indoor Cricket action to be found anywhere–and yes, we certainly do sell our photographs, email us for details.
