S&C Slatter was engaged by Cheltenham College to deliver a major refurbishment of their outdoor sports facilities featuring the re-surfacing of two full-size artificial turf hockey pitches and a 58m x 34m multi-use games area principally used for tennis and netball. A new full-length junior twin lane cricket practice area was also provided with artificial turf playing systems.
The two existing hockey pitches were refurbished and upgraded with new 18mm sand-dressed artificial turf which in conjunction with in-situ bound rubber shock pads, produce exceptional ball performance and player comfort. For the ‘Cotswold’ pitch, a two tone colour layout of green and blue was selected with the College crest inset into the artificial turf.
With the multi-use games area, a new sports grade tarmacadam top layer was laid over the existing surface and coated with a two tone green colour textured acrylic resin to complete the resurfacing.
