Refurbishment of two existing full-size pitches

Blakedown Sport & Play are very proud to have carried out the refurbishment of two existing pitches at Southgate Hockey Club in Hertfordshire.

Major fund raising efforts by members of the first division club and public made it possible for both full size pitches to be resurfaced.

Client: Southgate Hockey Club

Contract Type JCT

Value: £350,000

Build Time: 7 weeks

The high-specification Edel Triple-T sports carpet was chosen for both the water-based and sand-dressed pitches, offering a high ball speed with good grip and low friction, ideal for top-level competition hockey.

The Edel Triple T Global Standard water-based pitch had a replacement in-situ rubber shockpad restoring best possible play characteristics. New kerbing and drainage channels were also constructed around the pitch.

The second, worn-out sand-filled pitch was also replaced with the Edel's Triple T Sand-dressed product, providing a top quality hockey and multi-sport facility: allowing the club to continue hiring out the facility to local football clubs and amateur teams.

Blakedown utilised their in-house skills for a complete refurbishment scheme including work to the surrounding areas: the old sports carpets were re-used for spectator areas and walkways, new tarmac paving was laid, and decking around the club-house provided the finishing touch.

Location: Trent Park, Barnet, Hertfordshire, EN4 0NS
