Case Study: Wellington College (Hockey)

Sand-dressed Artificial Turf Pitch for Hockey and Tennis

Wellington College has a well established reputation for sporting excellence and wished to develop a new hockey and tennis facility which enhanced both the player and spectator experience.

S&C Slatter was chosen to work with the College in designing the refurbishment, extension and upgrading of a 20 year old sand-filled artificial turf facility, in order to deliver International Hockey Federation (FIH) National Performance Standard at all times, and FIH Global Performance Standard when wet.

This required a re-construction of the existing pitch foundation, creating a new engineered macadam sub-base overlaid with an in-situ bound SBR shockpad.

A high quality sand-dressed texturised monofilament artificial turf was selected as the optimum playing surface complete with the College logo manufactured in the same artificial turf material and inset into the pitch.

Facility

Sand-dressed Artificial Turf Pitch for Hockey and Tennis. 6344m2.

FIH National Standard Performance at all times, and FIH Global Standard when wet. Recreational tennis.

Re-modelling of sub-base and drainage, upgraded perimeter fencing system, new floodlights, enhanced spectator facilities and access routes.

I must commend you for delivering the scheme in front of programme, on budget with no extras or disputes and to an outstanding quality along with no H&S events.
