New sports facilities at the Hendon Campus

Blakedown Sport & Play carried out extensive reconstruction works to an existing sand-filled (astroturf) pitch at Middlesex University’s Hendon Campus. Works included a new 3G Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) for football and rugby. The high-spec 3G Touchdown 60 carpet was installed onto a shockpad – ensuring IRB '22 playing capability. A second sand-dressed MUGA was built with a shockpad to accommodate cricket, tennis, netball and basketball. Five cricket bays with retractable netting were also installed.

Client: Middlesex University

Value: £650,000

Build Time: 12 weeks

Two further sand-dressed MUGA’s were built. These allow for basketball, tennis, netball and 5-a-side football. Heavy duty fencing was installed with recessed goal areas plus basketball hoop and backboards.

Finally a 60m traverse climbing wall was installed, with colour coded grips to allow for different levels of difficulty. This is the longest wall of its kind in the UK. All of the new areas needed a new drainage system installing, plus new stone and macadam layers. Fencing and floodlighting to all the MUGA’s completed this large project.

Location: The Burroughs, London, NW4 4BT
