Derbyshire County Council employed Blakedown to install a full-size 3G football and hockey pitch at Glossopdale Community College. The playing surface chosen for the artificial turf pitch was TigerTurf’s Challenger laid onto an engineered tarmac base with shockpad.
As well as the main hockey and football layout, three cross-play 7-a-side football pitches were seamed into the turf and divider netting rails installed to section off each mini pitch. The completed project differed slightly from the original plans: the pitch was relocated by a few metres to save a protected tree. The pitch is also fenced with heavy-duty twinbar and has a full floodlighting system.
