From early 2018 Playrite had been involved in preliminary discussions relating to the synthetic surface and this process continued until spring 2020 when the club was able to finance the scheme.
Working closely with the Club and together with the appointed contractor (Prestige Civils and Sports Ltd, Towcester) Playrite’s Tournament 18 Elite Tufted Synthetic Grass was chosen for the surface.
Tournament 18 Elite is a UK manufactured, high performance, durable, low maintenance, synthetic surface that conforms to FIH standards for Hockey as well as being highly suited to Multisports.
This was very important to the club because as well as being used for competitive hockey the surface was excellent for football use and inlaid lines were provided for both sports accordingly.
Installation of the pitch over an area of 7,000m2 was undertaken during the summer of 2020 and this fantastic new facility is now being used for both competitive hockey and football during all times of day and evenings by people of all ages and abilities.
