What is a Needlepunch Pitch?

A needlepunch pitch is a type of sport surfacing made from artificial turf. It has curly yarn fibres making it slightly different from other synthetic grass specifications, but this also make it more durable and versatile. Also known as Multisport turf, the needlepunch surfacing is available in a  range of vibrant colours, and features a sand infill to provide the right playing qualities for a selection of sports.

This fibre bonded artificial sport surface is a hard wearing a durable surfacing option for multi use games areas, all weather sports pitches and athletics tracks. Needlepunch synthetic grass is a popular choice for primary schools as it provides a softer impact absorbing surface compared with traditional macadam or polymeric rubber sports courts. Needlepunch surfacing can also be installed in a number of bright colours to create a rainbow design which makes sport even more fun for younger children.

We can carry out the needlepunch services for a range of surface specifications and dimensions to suit your individual requirements and fit within your budget to ensure that you’re happy with the final product. Our designs, specifications and quotes can all be tailored to suit your organisation and to ensure that your needlepunch sports facility has the best possible performance and safety characteristics for everyone who uses it.

Building a Multisport Facility

We are able to carry out a full installation for a brand new facility at your school, college or club. This typically includes preparing a stone or macadam sub base to create a stable foundation. We’ll then lay the artificial carpet itself in separate sections and glue these down at the joints and edges. Finally a layer of sand infill will be spread across the whole pitch and brushed through the fibres. When carrying out a sport surfacing construction project it’s important to choose a reliable and experienced contractor. Conducting background checks on previous work will help give you the confidence that you will get a top quality service and a sports facility to be proud of.

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!

How to Maintain a Needlepunch Pitch

Cleaning and maintenance is also an important part of the needlepunch services we offer as it’s vital that you look after a synthetic turf sports surface properly to ensure you get the best performance qualities. The process of needlepunch surface maintenance could include regular brushing to remove dirt and debris, as well as topping up infill levels to keep the yarn fibres stable and maintain good playing characteristics. Sand infill rejuvenation can also be carried out for a Multisport surface if the sand becomes contaminated, this involved infill extraction to remove the dirty sand and replace it with new clean sand.

If this type of maintenance is not put into place, the surfacing can become contaminated and lose its porosity and drainage qualities leading to the surface becoming flooded or waterlogged. This is why it’s important to regularly check for water pooling on the sports surface so any issues can be fixed and the performance and safety of the facility will not be compromised.
