As part of a multi-million pound youth and community complex development in Castleford, West Yorkshire, Blakedown Sport & Play were employed to construct a new 3G football pitch, a tarmac MUGA, and a mini-climbing wall at The Hut Active Centre. The 45 x 33m 3G pitch was constructed using Edel 60mm Soccer Standard artificial turf. Lines for 5-a-side and 7-a-side football were seamed into the turf, and the pitch was installed with 4m high weldmesh perimeter fencing.
The multi-use games area has a tarmac playing surface with painted sports lines for basketball and 5-a-side football. The fencing system for the MUGA includes goal recesses and holds a floodlight in each corner. Blakedown also supplied the sports equipment and basketball hoops for the facility.
