Project: Sand Dressed Hockey Pitch, Tennis Courts and Car Park

  • Extension and Complete Reconstruction of Hockey Pitch
  • 8 New Tennis Courts
  • New Car Park
  • Long Jump
  • Markings for Hockey, Tennis and Athletics
  • Environmental Improvement Works
  • Large Retaining Walls
  • DDA Access Pathways

A two-phase, Design and Build Project to provide new sports facilities.  Phase 1 was to extend and completely reconstruct the old Redgra hockey pitch, providing a Sand Dressed artificial surface to meet the FIH National Standard.  The pitch is marked out for hockey, tennis and athletics, with the added benefit of a long jump pit adjacent, enabling athletics practice throughout the year.  

Stabilisation works were carried out to the pitch base as the ground conditions were very heavy clay.  A reinforced, insitu-concrete retaining wall was designed and built along one end of the pitch to separate the storm attenuation pond.

A Car Park was constructed as part of a new traffic management scheme and connecting pathways installed to link the sports facilities.
