3G synthetic grass 5-a-side court construction is popular in the UK because the artificial turf specification is ideal for all weather facilities. A primary school in London approached us this year to install one of these 3G surfaces so that their students could use it during PE lessons and in extra curricular clubs. The school wanted to replace a natural grass pitch which could not be used for sports by installing a brand new top quality synthetic surface.
3G 5-a-side Court Construction
We started this project by preparing the groundworks which involved digging out the existing natural grass surface and putting in a soakaway system. This system helps the pitch to have an efficient drainage system for rainwater so that the area doesn’t become flooded in wet weather. We then put in a layer of porous stones which we typically use as a sub base for all of our sports pitch installations because it’s the most durable and long lasting. Once the stone had been installed and compacted, it created the ideal foundation for the rest of the 3G surfacing and the 5-a-side court construction.
With the compacted porous stone sub base as a strong foundation, we could then apply a macadam base layer which creates a smooth and even surface for the 3G synthetic carpet to be installed. This next part was done by rolling out the artificial sports turf in pieces which were then glued together to hold them in place. Finally the artificial carpet was infilled with sand and rubber, this gives the sport surfacing ideal performance qualities and gives players a more comfortable playing experience.
When we had completed the synthetic 5-a-side court construction, the school were very pleased with their new all weather sports facility. The 3G artificial pitch can be used during lessons and in after school sports activities. Because of the strong durability of this surface type, the school even have the opportunity to rent the pitch out to others, enabling them to get some extra revenue.
