Hockey Pitch Repairs

Contact Us

It may be necessary to carry out hockey pitch repairs for your sand filled or sand dressed surface if it becomes damaged or worn out. This could include repairs to joints and seams in the artificial turf carpet, top up of infill, or repairs to damage which occurs as a result of vandalism. It’s important to  have any necessary hockey pitch repairs carried out as soon as possible to prevent them getting worse and making the facility unsafe. If you don’t get your hockey pitch fixed as soon as possible, they can grow and this may lead to the area needing to be resurfaced which will be a lot more costly.

Feel free to get in touch with us if you’d like some more advice on what we can do for you. One of our specialists will gladly give you a quote for any repairs which may be needed.


Rejuvenating Sand Filled Turf

Another aspect of the hockey pitch repairs could be sand filled turf rejuvenation to fix waterlogging or flooding of the surface. This is done by getting rid of contaminated sand infill within the artificial fibres and installing a new layer of fresh sand. Carrying out this rejuvenation process unblocks the pores of the artificial turf surfacing and allows water to drain through it again without flooding or puddling on the pitch. You should have this hockey pitch rejuvenation done if the surface starts to get waterlogged or there is moss and algae growing on the synthetic carpet.

Woodhouse grove school

Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.

AFC Bournemouth

When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with. 

Banister Primary School

We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!

Activity For All

Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!

Golborne High School

I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!

Costs of Repairing Hockey Pitches

With this sort of job, the costs of repairing hockey pitches will always vary depending on the extent of the damage and the condition that the synthetic grass surfacing is in. Smaller repairs will of course be cheaper than large maintenance jobs or full resurfacing projects. The area size of the surface will also have an effect on the price for hockey pitch repairs, as well as the site location and the amount of use the sports surface is going to get. Having regular proactive maintenance done will also reduce the costs of repairing hockey pitches as a well maintained surface will have fewer problems than one which is not looked after properly.
