3G Artificial Turf Pitch for Football, Rugby and American Football

As part of an on-going programme of expanding its sports facilities, the University of Kent commissioned S&C Slatter to build a truly exceptional new 3G artificial turf sports pitch. Situated at the University’s outdoor facilities complex on campus, the 127m x 80m pitch provides students with even more opportunity to participate in sport.

University of Kent
The design specification enables back-to-back fixtures and training for rugby, football and American football; delivering optimal playing conditions for matches from recreational play to top
level rugby and football. The pitch is certified to FIFA 1 Star, World Rugby Regulation 22 and IATS performance standards.
The 3G artificial turf selected for this project was the high-performance 60mm Vertex RGF, developed by FieldTurf, the World’s leading producer of artificial turf, and our manufacturing partner. Floodlighting, fencing, spectator hard standing and access paths are all elements of the overall scheme provided by S&C Slatter.
