Blakedown Sport & Play were selected by Kier Moss for the extensive development of sports facilities at Ormiston Shelfield Community Academy near Walsall. For football, Blakedown constructed a full-size third-generation (3G) pitch using TigerTurf Football60 artificial sports turf.
The total pitch footprint was 104m by 71m and the in-laid sports lines included three cross-play pitches for 7-a-side or 9-a-side football. Divider netting can be deployed to section off the three cross-play pitches which are leased out to the public in the evening.
A bank of four netball and tennis courts were also built adjacent to the 3G pitch. This large tarmac surface multi-use games area, as well as the 3G pitch, were completed with heavy-duty twin-bar fencing and a full floodlighting system.
