Other Info:
The track was originally red gravel and was upgraded to synthetic in late 1990. There is a pavilion at the track which is shared with the cricketers as one side faces onto the track and the other onto the ground of Brecon CC. The stand is also double sided although there is only seating for 112 to watch the cricket. There is a disused cinder HJ fan on the edge of the cricket ground. The adjacent Brecon Leisure Centre was built in April 1995. The track is due to be resurfaced by Polytan in autumn 2001.
