Sympathetic astroturf pitch

Hazlegrove Preparatory School in Somerset directly employed Blakedown Sport & Play to construct a full-size 101.4m x 63m sand-filled hockey pitch

  • Client: Hazlegrove Preparatory School
  • Contract Value: £300,000
  • Build Time: 12 weeks

After excavating a large volume of earth and levelling the site, the construction involved the installation of a new drainage system, stone foundations and a double-layer of Engineered macadam base. A 12mm in-situ shockpad was laid for impact absorption, and the selected playing surface was Edel's LSR 24mm with low slide resistance technology.

To keep the scheme in sympathy with its surroundings, the project was finished with 1.2m post-and-rail pine and weldmesh perimeter fencing, pine kickboards, and a tarmac spectator area and external perimeter footpath.

Location: Sparkford, Yeovil, Somerset, BA22 7JA
