Blakedown were chosen to construct two top-specification sand-dressed pitches at the Dragon School in Oxford. The first is a full-size pitch to be used for hockey and football. The second is an 88m x 38m multi-use games area to be used for tennis and hockey training. Both were surfaced with an Edel LSR/NDR synthetic turf product.
Both pitches have 3m high surrounding weldmesh fencing with 5m high extensions behind the goal-mouths and rebound boards fitted to the base of the panels. Blakedown also installed a 400lux floodlighting system and constructed access roads, walkways, paths, a timber storage hut, a groundsman's equipment store, and changing room facilities to finish off the development.
