THE MAN IN CHARGE of Kensington Oval doesn’t believe the facility will be run ragged by athletics.
The acting chief executive officer of Kensington Oval Management Inc. (KOMI), Ben Toppin, says the heavy traffic of the current track and field calendar should not cause too much wear and tear on the outfield ahead of the regional and international cricket season.
Toppin gave the assurance during Eden Lodge Primary School’s sports day yesterday in light of concerns expressed about the already deteriorating outfield following the Oval’s recent staging of two football tournaments.
“I don’t see a problem, but we’re watching it very closely over the next couple days to see the effect of two or three days of running and then the growth rate of the grass,” said Toppin from the grounds of the Oval.Please read the full story in today’s WEEKEND NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
