Blakedown Sport & Play were sub-contracted by Carillion to construct the new artificial turf rugby and football pitch for Penryn College and Penryn Rugby Football Club in Cornwall. The 120m x 75m pitch was surfaced with 3G rubber-filled turf laid onto a top-specification Brock shockpad, with sports lines for rugby and football seamed into the turf.

The installation included 5m high weldmesh fencing with 1.2m high timber ranch boards and a 200lux floodlighting system. Blakedown also supplied and installed foldaway rugby posts, free-standing full-size football goals, and 7-a-side free-standing mini-goals.
