Following a competitive tender procedure Blakedown Sport & Play were awarded the contract to build a full size, 3rd Generation football pitch at the brand new Portway Lifestyle Centre in Oldbury, West Midlands.
The pitch was built using 'Superblade 50' 3G turf from FIFA preferred carpet supplier Edel, laid onto a top-specification 'engineered' base, consisting of stone, tarmac and shockpad. The pitch was tested and certified to meet FIFA 2* performance standards.
The facility was completed with 5 metre high twin-bar sports fencing, goal recesses, macadam access ways, and eight 15 metre high floodlighting columns at 200lux brilliance. Lines for 11-a-side football and three 5-a-side football pitches were in-laid into the sports turf: two retractable dividing nets allow the pitch to be sectioned off for 5-a-side matches.
