Construction and upgrade to track and pitch

Having constructed the eight lane athletics track at Hereford Leisure Centre, Blakedown were invited back by Herefordshire Council to resurface their existing 95.5m x 67m 'astroturf' hockey pitch. The existing playing surface was upgraded to a top-of-the-range, FIH approved, sand-dressed synthetic turf with product of choice Edel Elite LSR/NDR. Blakedown also undertook repairs to the shockpad before resurfacing.

  • Client: Herefordshire Council
  • Contract Value: £146,000
  • Build Time: 7 weeks

Line markings were included for hockey plus three 7-a-side football pitches which can be sectioned off with divider netting. The pitch was fitted with 4m high perimeter fencing completed with double weld-mesh rebound panels.

The project was finalised with Blakedown supplying and erecting a UK Athletics standard throwing cage for hammer and discus.
