Edel LSR/NDR Sand-dressed Pitch

After the successful completion of the resurfacing of an existing sand-filled pitch at Dauntsey’s School in Wiltshire, Blakedown Sport & Play won the next contract to install a new hockey pitch.

The 101.5m x 63m FIH certified pitch has a sand-dressed Edel LSR/NDR carpet with 12mm shockpad, installed because the pitch is also used for tennis.

Client: Dauntsey's School

Contract Type JCT with CD

Value: £500,000

Build Time: 16 weeks

Adjacent to the hockey pitch, Blakedown Sport & Play also installed a sand-dressed training facility. Once completed, our sister company Blakedown Landscapes won the £1m external works contract at the school through Easdon Cole Consultants. This contract included new coach routes, a large car park, three grass rugby pitches, a cricket oval, and a grass athletics track.

Location: West Lavington, Devizes, Wiltshire, SN10 4HE

The new pitch was opened by Simon Mason, GB Hockey Goalkeeper.

The debut game on the new pitch.

The construction included a tarmac spectator area and railing.

The selected playing surface was Edel's LSR/NDR sand-dressed synthetic turf.
