3G Pitch Installation

3G artificial pitch construction is mainly carried out at high schools, leisure centres and sports clubs, this is because the 3G artificial grass is perfect for Rugby and Football, which are two of the most popular sports across the nation. The artificial grass carpet is installed over a sub base – the sub base is designed to make sure that the playing surface is completely flat for when the 3G artificial pitch construction takes place. It also makes sure the pitch is completely porous as it allows for water to pass through it.

Our team have completed many of these projects so feel free to contact us if you would like to find out more. We’d be happy to give you a quote for a full installation if you fill in our contact form with all of the details.

The 3G artificial pitch construction should potentially take place over a shock pad, which is recommended for sports pitches that are being used for rugby as it is a full contact game that could result in a lot of injuries without it. Not only that, the sub base ensures that the carpet does not slip, making sure that the product life is as long as it can be. The carpet has a moderate pile height and is fitted with a rubber and sand infill that helps maintain the height of the fibres throughout play.


3G Synthetic Pitch Installation Costs

3G synthetic pitch installation costs can vary on a lot of different factors, the biggest factor being the size of the pitch that’s being constructed, obviously the bigger the pitch, the more expensive the job is going to be due to more 3G carpet being used. You can also get different specifications for 3G artificial pitch construction; this means that certain accreditations set by governing bodies can be met, such as FIFA 1 and 2 star, allowing for more control and customization over your sports pitch, helping you control the 3G synthetic pitch installation costs.

In this video the process of a 3G sports pitch is shown, this is a project we carried out in Gloucestershire to create a multi use football pitch in 3G synthetic turf.

When having your 3G synthetic pitch installed, you can opt to have a variety of extra features for your sports pitch such as sports facility fencing, and there is also the option to have floodlighting installed so the pitch can be used for evening matches. 3G synthetic pitch installation costs should always take into account a maintenance plan for once the sports pitch has been installed, a thorough maintenance plan can ensure that the product life of the sports surface is much longer and extensive than without one. We aim to give the best quality sports pitch at the best possible value, ensuring a happy customer that is able to stay within their budget.


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!
