Floodlit all weather sports pitches are now an integral part of sporting play in the UK. The construction of the all weather pitch is dependent on many factors. Design, specification, dimensions of the court and location can all have an impact on the final budget. Although funding can be achieved through funding websites and government initiatives.
Sports Floodlighting Experts
Have floodlights at your sports facility can increase its usability and create opportunities for more revenue. It is common for schools to have floodlit all weather pitches which they can rent out during the evenings. This doesn’t just limit them to using the area in the day time for lessons and after school clubs. We often carry out sports pitch construction work at various UK locations and we can include floodlights into this.
All weather sports pitches are often constructed with floodlights and this lighting will allow the facility to be open at night and increase turnover. The kickabout ball court can be made with numerous different specialists surfacing. Some of the common specifications include:
- 2G synthetic turf

- Porous Macadam
- Polymeric MUGA
We offer various design options when installing these facilities. Our team would be happy to discuss costs and offer a quote which suits your budget. You should also consider any maintenance requirements when installing a new sports facility.
All Weather Pitch Accessories
Adding floodlighting to sports facilities is becoming increasingly common in the UK. It maximises the features of the area and ensures it can be used even after daylight hours. Another common accessory for all weather pitches is fencing. There are many types of perimeter fence we can supply with one of the most common being sport rebound fencing. This helps keep the area secure when it’s not in use as well as preventing loss of equipment from the facility.
You should have a regular cleaning schedule for the facility to prevent future costs in repairs or resurfacing. You can purchase various tools and equipment to keep the surface clean and in top condition. We would recommend carrying out routine brushing and jet washing of hard court surfaces. For synthetic turf facilities, drag brushing should be done to evenly distribute the infill.
The different surfaces will have different maintenance costs and these can include a resurface, cleaning and anti slip applications. Soft Surfaces Ltd are a turnkey contractor who are specialists in this sector.
