The Leys School
New Hockey Pitch ready for International Competition
Blakedown Sport & Play have completed the resurfacing of a full-size hockey pitch at the Leys School in Cambridge using Edel's top-of-the-range Triple T sand-dressed sports turf.
After stripping and disposing of the dilapidated sand-filled (astroturf) surface, repair work was carried out to the shockpad and new turf carpet grippers were fitted along the perimeter.
Client: The Leys School
Contract Type JCT Design & Build

A new 3 metre high fencing system was erected to replace the old system, and a new spectator viewing area was installed along one side of the pitch. A new overflow car-park behind the viewing area with a tarmac footpath completed this top class facility.
The new pitch has been performance tested and meets FIH Class 1 National (England Hockey Category 1) standards, making it suitable for international and national level hockey competition.
