A Full-Scope Campus Facility for the Country’s Favorite Game
As part of the immensely sprawling SNU Campus at Dadri, Greater Noida, which takes pride in its commitment to the green cause in more senses than one, this facility for India’s favorite sport cuts no corners. Offering a cricket ground of a size on par with international standards, it is replete with all requirements like full turf pitches, net pitches, changing rooms and accompanying support facilities. It can be accessed from the front as well as rear ends by different campus roads through elaborate portals housed in sleek and sophisticated buildings marked by a modernist architectural language. Ample stadium seating provided adjoining the entrance portals is covered by cable stay roofs, where sheet roofing is held up by cables suspended from a row of masts, creating an interesting built form.
Nothing But the Best for India’s Favourite Sport
Green Stadium for Green Campus
A special design feature of the SNU cricket ground is its green spectator seating arrangement, which appears as wedges of bermed up mounds of green grass all around the circumference of the ground, doubling up as landscape as well as spectator stands. Strategies for passive climate response which pervade all buildings on campus, like recessed fenestration and shady canopies are present in the stadium’s portal structures as well. The SNU cricket stadium and ground not only offer the campus community and its visitors a venue for pursuing a healthy lifestyle and holistic character building but also provide state-of-the-art facilities for their cricketing and other sporting activities and also a vibrant venue to socialize over sport.
