Blakedown Sport & Play were employed by Sandwell Leisure Trust to transform two of the outdoor tennis courts into artificial turf football pitches for club and community use. The existing playing surface was pulled up and a top specification Brock shockpad installed onto the prepared base. The selected playing surface was a sand-filled sports turf with seamed lines for 5-a-side football. The project included a new twinbar fencing system with 1.2m rebound reinforcements and goal recesses.
