Sandringham School

Sandringham school’s aim is simple— to be world-class. That means whenever possible, provide the best products and facilities in the school and this is why Playrite’s surface was chosen to upgrade their sports facilities.

Download the Case Study

The school previously had a non-porous, very slippy area which was causing a hazard to students especially in wet weather. Sandringham Head of PE decided steps were needed to revitalise their sports area into something that children could enjoy and use to their full potential.

Matchplay 2 was introduced to the school and as the surface boasts so many advantages for all sports and so the decision became an easy one. ETC Sports contractors were assigned the task to turn the slippery hard-surfaced area into a fully porous artificial grassed sports area the school could be proud of and most importantly, a sports pitch that can be used all year round no matter how wet the weather.

3 years from the project’s completion, Simon Wells Managing Director at ETC Sports commented how pleased they were with the outcome. The surface is still providing the school with the same fantastic advantages as it was in the first year of installation.
