Sports Pitch Specification

We are specialists who carry out services for sport and recreational facilities across the whole of the UK to an excellent standard. We can fully create a bespoke sports pitch specification for your organisation. When planning the design, we take a range of factors into account, such as the surface uses, size, location, budget and level of performance. Creating the design specification is the first process which we carry out before the installation, this enables us to make the perfect pitch for your facility and a surface which you can enjoy and make the most of.

Sports Surfacing Specs

Our company has a range of different surface types available, these include macadam, polymeric, 2G sand dressed, 2G sand filled, needlepunch and 3G artificial grass surfacing. Each one of these materials has ideal qualities for individual activities and this is important to know when designing the pitch specification.

  • The activities which are played on macadam are normally tennis, netball and basketball. This surface provides good ball bounce and slip resistance.
  • Polymeric is ideal for athletics, tennis and netball.
  • 2G sand dressed and filled surfaces are for hockey and football.
  • Needlepunch is used for multi use games areas.
  • 3G artificial grass is great for football and rugby as it acts like natural grass without the heavy maintenance.

The sports pitch specification will depend entirely on your individual needs. Make certain to get in touch with us now for more information.

Sports Facility Equipment

As well as being able to install the surfacing itself, we also add sports facility equipment as extras. When communicating with the client we explain to them about the extra services we can provide. We can then see if they want them or if they will be necessary for their facility. Our wealth of experience comes in handy when dealing with clients who haven’t been through this process before. Our experts can guide you through the specification in detail and make sure you are clear on each aspect.

This is why it is important to do checks on your installers to make sure that they know what they are doing. You will end up with the surface you were looking for. We suggest that you do background checks and see how long they have been established. Also, ask to see previous projects they have completed and also speak to their previous clients. This will ensure you are using the correct people for the sports pitch construction job.

The sporting equipment which we have to offer, includes court rebound fencing, floodlighting and ball stop netting. There are different types of sports rebound fence to choose from depending on the sports which will be played and your budget; these options include double twin bar super rebound, weldmesh and a chain-link system. Double twin bar rebound fencing is our most solid and secure specifications for outdoor pitches and a lot of MUGA activity areas have this type installed.

Weldmesh fencing is also a strong type used for multisport surfaces and the chain link design is more of a simple option that is still effective, it is normally installed for recreational surfaces which are not heavily used. As well as fencing we will also supply and install specialist outdoor floodlighting for your outdoor area to help you use it to its maximum potential all year round and after daylight hours.
