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
  • Contract Value: £200,000
  • Build Time: 8 weeks

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.

Location: Fen Causeway, Cambridge, CB2 7AD
