Blakedown Sport & Play completed construction of a 112m x 66m sand dressed ATP at Priestly College in Warrington using a Desso ‘Trophy’ sports turf laid onto an Engineered base and in-situ shockpad. Perimeter fencing and floodlighting completed the project.

The pitch was built on a ‘green-field’ site that needed to be levelled in order to allow a top specification drainage system to be installed. Blakedown also embarked on large-scale reinstatement works after the build including the planting of 200 trees and plants. The pitch was lined for hockey and football, but will also accommodate a variety of other sports, activities, and break-time play.
