CASE STUDY – Sports Pitch Installation

Leeds Trinity University called upon specialist sports court installers Spadeoak to install a sports surface that would be sufficient for students to play a variety of sports.
The client wanted an area constructing to host a full size and 3no 5-a-side football pitches with the surface also to be utilised as a full size hockey pitch.

Leeds Trinity University required an area that gave them the flexibility to offer students a full-size football, 3no 5-a-side football and hockey pitch.

Having gained a thorough understanding of the specific requirements and our experience, Spadeoak were able to offer a total design and construction package.

The package consisted of the pitch installation, surrounding 3m sports fence line, floodlights and groundworks. Spadeoak groundworks teams had to provide a sufficient area for the sports pitch, this included building up an area of land and providing support to ensure the pitch specifications could be met, fencing the area to minimise safety risks.

Spadeoak installing a polymeric surface, a material ideal for providing a wide variety of sports to be played on. A polymeric surface offers great grip when wet and a high degree of impact absorbency that reduce the risk of injury and increases comfort during play.

The entire project was completed in 20 weeks and delivered to schedule.
