The selected artificial turf was Edel's 'Touchdown' 65mm which was laid onto an engineered base of porous taramc. As well as sports lines for rugby, the pitch was also lined with three cross-play 7-a-side football pitches sectioned off with divider netting. To complete the project, Blakedown also installed a new 4m high twinbar fencing system, with 5m high extensions for behind the goalposts, and a ball-capture netting system which raises the perimeter to 10 metres.
