Case Study: Royal Holloway University of London

3G Artificial Turf Pitch for Football & Rugby

Sand-dressed Artificial Turf Pitch for Hockey & Lacrosse

Tennis and Netball Courts

Multi-use Games Area

Royal Holloway University of London has a strong commitment to sport from encouraging recreational sport and keeping fit to supporting world-class athletes. There are some 60 sports clubs for students to join, ranging from football to lacrosse to ninjutsu and ultimate frisbee.

S&C Slatter was selected to deliver an outstanding new build development of the sports centre facilities, constructing state of the art artificial turf pitches for football & rugby and hockey & lacrosse, together with tarmacadam Tennis/Netball courts and a Multi-use Games Area.

The combined full size football and rugby pitch features a high technology 3G artificial turf system while the hockey & lacrosse pitch uses a sand-dressed texturised monofilament artificial turf.

In both cases the playing surface was installed over a specially designed in-situ bound performance layer, and the sand dressed pitch also incorporates a tarmacadam engineered sub-base.

Feedback has been overwhelming on the standard and quality of the playing surfaces. We’ve had visitors from all over the country to view the facilities and workmanship that went into it. We have been very happy working with S&C Slatter and would consider our relationship as a partnership rather than client/contractor.
