The mix has been used at the 13 acre site, which comprises 30 pitches, seven lawn tennis courts and two bowling greens, since 2007.
Skelton said: "Originally, I used a Ryegrass and Creeping Red Fescue mix on my wicket ends. On the actual ‘table’ I used a fine bowling green seed mixture; I sourced these from a local seed merchant.
"I was starting to struggle a bit with grass coverage on the cricket pitches. I got talking to a friend and he recommended A5 to me as it is good at recovering quickly from wear. I began to use it on all my cricket pitches and lawn tennis courts in autumn 2007."
Commenting on the seed mixture, he said: "What I have been really impressed with is how soon it re-establishes itself. The A5 mixture is very deep rooting and bounces back well following mowing, rolling and after it has been played on. It regenerates very well.
"The sward is also a lovely deep green colour giving it an attractive appearance in the winter. It is very ‘fine leaved ‘, like a bowling green in some ways. I am also pleased with its high level of disease resistance."
Skelton won the ECB Yorkshire Groundsman of the Year award in 2009
