Rugby Pitch Fencing

Rugby pitch fencing is an important component for any rugby pitch construction project. For institutions such as schools and colleges it’s important that vandals don’t get onto the playing surface and cause damage as these sorts of institutions have tight budgets. Rugby pitch fencing offers security from outside influences and ensures that you don’t lose any ball whilst playing on your rugby pitch. The recommended rugby pitch fencing is the super rebound fencing, this allows for the ball to easily rebound off the rugby pitch fencing without causing any damage to the fence or the surrounding area.

The fencing is made from a double 8mm wire that stretches across the width of the rugby pitch fencing. There is then a 6mm wire horizontally placed to create a mesh structure that is extremely durable and strong enough to absorb a lot of impact force. At the end of each goal posts there should be a ball stop netting, this is to ensure that after a kick is made the ball doesn’t get lost and it is easy to retrieve. The most common rugby pitch fencing height is either 3 meters or 5 meters, this gives a lot of coverage around the surface ensuring that balls don’t get lost.


Rugby Surfaces Fencing Costs

Rugby surfaces fencing costs will vary depending mainly on the size of the fencing job in question. A full sized rugby pitch with 5 meter high fencing will of course cost considerably more than a half sized rugby pitch with only 3 meter high fencing. The fencing is important as it acts as a security measure from vandals getting onto the surface that could then graffiti or damage it, as this could prove to be very costly. If you have to stick within a tight budget we do offer alternatives from the super rebound fencing, one example being chain link fencing, this is a much cheaper rugby pitch fencing option which will still offer security measures and for the best part keep balls with the rugby pitch. You can also opt to not have the ball stopping netting behind the goal posts to keep rugby surfaces fencing costs down, however this could lead to an increase in lost balls and ultimately become a hindrance. There are many ways to keep costs lower to fit within your budget that still offer great results. We aim to give you a great value end product which fits within your budget and will ensure that you have a top quality sports facility which can be enjoyed for a long time.


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!
