The University Of Gloucestershire Park Campus is set in extensive gardens a short distance from Cheltenham Town Centre and is home to business, media, accountancy, law and computing.
The University decided that an investment was needed for their grounds and they worked closely with Playrite and MUGA UK to decide that a new multi-use surface was just what they were looking for.
Playrite liaised closely with the client along with MUGA UK’s help, to discuss the requirements. The university wanted a durable, multi sports, low maintenance surface and they quickly recognised Playrite’s Matchplay 2 surface ticked all the right boxes. Matchplay 2 is extremely durable and it’s proven multisport performance enables the students to best utilise their facility with minimal maintenance costs.
Neil McHugh from MUGA UK, a specialist consultant within the sports surface industry specified Playrite’s Matchplay 2 for this project; Neil has worked with Playrite on a variety of projects over the last few years.
The contract for the installation of the pitch was awarded to Midland CSB and completed early 2016 to an excellent finished result.
Playrite have since made a follow up visit to the University and found that both students and staff are delighted with their new surface and the playing characteristics it offers. They are now considering funding a similar installation on an adjacent campus.
Playrite are thrilled with the transformation of the playing area, which has provided the students somewhere to play multiple sports in what was a refined area. It really is proving to be a great benefit to the University.
