At the start of 2019, Playrite were approached by Dura-Sport Ltd, located in Leicester, who had been appointed by Krishna Avanti Primary School. Krishna Avanti Primary School in Leicester is a Hindu faith free school which currently has 360 pupils. The school prides itself on moral, social and spiritual development.
The school had contacted Dura-Sport Ltd to upgrade their existing macadam area, approximately 2000 square metres, to a synthetic surface that would be suitable for multi-sport activities.
After consultations and site meetings with the school, it was decided that Playrite’s Matchplay 2 Multi-sport Needlepunch Surface would be an ideal choice for the proposed scheme.
Dura-Sport Ltd had previously worked with Playrite on a number of projects and had no doubt that Matchplay 2 would be perfect for the school’s requirements.
Manufactured In the UK, Matchplay 2 is a highly durable, low maintenance surface which is particularly suited to netball, tennis, football and hockey – these of which were high on the schools list of primary sports.
During the early Spring of 2019, Dura-Sport Ltd completed the 2000 square metre installation of the MUGA in a striking two- tone color scheme consisting of Playrite green playing area with a blue surround. Inlaid lines were also provided for tennis, netball, hockey and football to help the school have maximum multi-use out of their new surface.
The school announced that they were delighted with the installation and the level of service provided by both Playrite and Dura-Sport Ltd. The new surface is now being enjoyed on a daily basis by pupils and is enhancing their physical education experience.
