Association football is the most played sport in the UK and is played in just about every school & sports club. Funding for this sport comes from the Football Association and is on most school syllabus. The influence of the FA Premier League & Football League means that the sport is one of the most high profile in the world and many schools and sports clubs can get funding from the national lottery, the football foundation and sport England. Football pitches can range in specification, design and sizes including 90 – 120m x 45 – 90m and this is because the surfacing and sports pitch can be tailored to suit your requirements.
A very common sports surfacing for this is the 3G sand filled / sand dressed artificial synthetic man made all weather surfacing and this often feels like you are playing on a natural grass system. However, this type of artificial surfacing will require regular maintenance to maintain the playability. Algal squidge on the surfacing can cause poor drainage and porosity which in turn will result in the surface feeling very hard underfoot. A common cause for this is the sand / rubber infill becoming contaminated with mud, sporn and grime and this will need to be extracted.
Once this has taken place, new clean sand can be installed and this complete surface rejuvenation, renovation, upgrade and revitalisation will make the system feel as good as new and the works can be scheduled with a regular tailored maintenance plan with Soft Surfaces Ltd.
