Polymeric Surface Funding

Contact Us

Many organisations such as schools, colleges and clubs in the UK can be eligible for polymeric surface funding to get help with financing a polymeric sports court surfacing project. Funding organisations offer grants to institutions with inadequate sports facilities who do not have the budget to pay for the construction of a new sports facility themselves. The polymeric surface funding can be made available for the installation of a range of sports surface including tennis courts, netball courts, athletics tracks and multi use games areas.

Having a brand new sports facility or multi use games area is a great way to engage kids at school and get them into participating in a wide variety of sports all in one place. This means that the polymeric surface funding opportunities are very important and can help drastically transform sports facilities for children throughout the UK. Feel free to contact us if you’d like some more information on what we offer and how we can help with funding.


Athletics facilities such as long jump runways and running tracks can also be installed with help from funding grants. These facilities are commonly installed in polymeric surfacing for high schools and athletics clubs, but are becoming increasingly popular at primary schools as they can be installed with needlepunch fibre bonded material to provide a softer landing surface. Schools and clubs who apply for funding and are accepted for a grant can receive financial help to install one of these polymeric sport surfaces which will greatly improve the sports facility of the institution and can be enjoyed by everyone for a long time. If you’re interested in applying for a funding grant to get a polymeric sports surface installed, please fill in our contact form with your details and we’ll get back to you with some helpful advice regarding specifications and the financial help you may be eligible for. You can find more information about polymeric sports surfacing throughout our website so please take a look through it and make yourself aware of all the options that are available to you.


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!
