How Much Does An All Weather Pitch Cost?
‘How Much Does An All Weather Pitch Cost?’ is a common question asked by schools, colleges, universities, sports clubs and leisure centres. These organisations are usually looking to build a new synthetic turf pitch or even looking to renovate and upgrade an existing old astroturf all weather pitch surface. Through advancements in the technology and designs of artificial sports pitches, these facilities provide benefits for both performance and safety. Where old natural grass surfaces can become muddy and unsafe in wet conditions, the range of specifications we offer are suitable for use all year round and in many weather conditions
Sports Flooring Types
There are a number of different flooring types that can be installed onto an outdoor sports pitch depending on your budget and the sports you would like to play. All of these specifications can be laid onto different area sizes and dimensions with bespoke designs to suit the space you have available and any existing facilities. If you would like to play specific sports on the area, then we can tailor the design to suit these activities. A number of specifications are outlined by FIFA for these types of artificial facilities.
All of these factors will determine the cost of the MUGA pitch surfacing. Prices can vary for every installation process as each one will have different designs and requirements to consider. We can offer a unique quote for your project if you would like to discuss an installation in more detail with us, so please fill in the contact form to receive a price today.
All Weather Pitch Surfaces
The surfaces we usually install include porous macadam, recycled rubber EPDM polymeric and synthetic all weather grass. These can be constructed to different specifications, designs and dimensions depending on your requirements. These specifications and designs include different sub base construction, installation of sports floodlighting and fencing, location, type and level of sport to be played and game line marking. Each of these variables and extra accessories will have an effect on the costs for the construction work, so it’s important to decide on a budget beforehand. As specialist contractors we will be able to create a flexible quote which meets your requirements for playability and also suits your budget.
In this video our team of expert installers carried out a resurfacing project to convert a worn out sand filled pitch into a new state of the art 3G synthetic surface. We ripped up the old carpet and installed a brand new macadam sub base with shockpad before laying the 3G artificial surfacing. Finally we applied inlaid line markings for multi use as a full sized football pitch with smaller 5 a side areas as well.
Synthetic Turf Football Pitches
A number of different surface types can be used for playing football at schools, clubs and leisure centres. One of the most popular is this 3G football pitch specification, and this offers the most natural performance qualities. It is an artificial turf carpet which contains an infill of sand and rubber to provide a durable and comfortable surface. Different pile heights can be supplied depending on requirements, and we also offer a shockpad to make the surfacing more impact absorbing. If the facility is being used to play rugby, a shockpad must be installed and the 3G carpet is the best option. This combination offers the most shock absorption for rugby as it is a contact sport where injuries are sometimes more likely.
Other options such as 2G sand filled surfacing can also be installed for use with football training and matches. This design features just a sand infill and can also be used for playing hockey and multi sports, depending on the specification which is chosen. We’ll be able to advise you on the best designs which will suit your facility and offer the most effective playing qualities. If you are just wanting to use the space for recreational use, or even if it’s for more professional matches, we will provide the right options.
Multi Use Sport Surfaces
We offer a bespoke service which is tailor made for each client to ensure that the end result is a top quality sports facility at a great value price. The surface types we specialise in can be used for numerous different sports including football, rugby, netball, tennis and basketball. Multi use games areas are also popular as many schools and clubs like to have versatile pitches where there may be a lack of outdoor space. We have installed many sporting surfaces at different locations which can be used for training and playing a number of activities.
One of the most versatile designs of artificial carpet is the needlepunch surface specification which is a sand filled flooring type. This is available in many colour options so it’s ideal for multiple activities in school playgrounds. It is an extremely durable surfacing type and we can also supply this for athletics runway facilities. The video here shows an installation of this Multisport synthetic carpet type for a sports facility.
