Sand-filled hockey and football pitch

Blakedown Sport & Play worked closely with Bath & North East Somerset Council to produce a first class full-size artificial all-weather multi-use sports pitch to be used for hockey and recreational soccer at Chew Valley School in Chew Magna.

The construction entailed major earthworks, installation of a drainage system, stone foundation works, a double tarmac base layer, 15mm shockpad, and a TigerTurf AG MT24 sand-filled playing surface. The pitch also included perimeter fencing and a full 350lux floodlighting system.

Client: Bath & North East Somerset Council

Contract Type: JCT Intermediate

Value: £350,000

After a long struggle to obtain planning and funding approval, Chew Valley School are delighted with their new facility which was part of a £1.2million sport and leisure development project.

Bill Chard, Chew Valley's Project Manager said, "All the hard work that has been done for so long, by so many, has finally come to fruition. We are very pleased with the new all weather pitch and the choice of Blakedown as our pitch contractor has proved to be a great success. Their experience and expertise has contributed significantly to the successful completion of this facility."
