Sand-dressed pitch for hockey and football

Blakedown have been employed by the Friary School in Lichfield to develop a top quality all-weather pitch for football and tennis.

Partially built on the existing footprint of old tarmac tennis courts which were pulled up, the area of the pitch was extended and new foundations laid. The playing surface chosen for the new pitch was TigerTurf Evolution sand-dressed turf, with the tennis and football lines seamed in. Blakedown also installed a new floodlighting system and heavy-duty perimeter fencing.

  • Client: The Friary School
  • Contract Type: JCT Minor Works
  • Contract Value: £250,000
  • Build Time: 14 weeks
"Our new pitch is a wonderful addition to our facilities. Blakedown did a really good job from start to finish and the surface is usable for most other sports as well as football and tennis. We wanted a multi sports surface, and we got a really good one."
"The workforce was discreet, highly professional and pleasant. I would have no reservation about using Blakedown again."
