Redgra Pitch Conversion to a Sand-dressed Hockey Field

CLS Sports were appointed to upgrade Crofton Academy’s existing Redgra Pitch into a new full sized, sand-dressed synthetic hockey pitch.

Crofton Academy Redgra Pitch

Pitch works included stripping the existing redgra area, re-grading the underlying stone layer, drainage works, fencing, floodlighting, and the installation of the synthetic hockey surface with associated infill.

Also included within the project was the construction of an access path alongside the facility leading down to the academies' natural playing fields. The new access road was constructed utilising the redgra material generated from the initial strip exercise and allows emergency vehicles to access the pitch quickly and easily.

 Key Facility Facts:

  • 6556m2
  • Dynamic base
  • Perimeter fencing, floodlighting, access and a full perimeter path
  • New sports equipment and dividing nets
  • Permanent inlaid and semi-permanent painted lines

‘We are over the moon with our new facility and would like to thank CLS and their staff for their professionalism and friendliness whilst they were working on site. We hope all your future projects are as successful as ours’ Pat Shepherd, Premises Manager
