Surface installed at Notts Forest academy

TigerTurf UK created a tailor-made surface for Nottingham Forest FC’s indoor academy using its Soccer Real 60XQ system. Working with Smith’s Construction, the new surface was delivered and laid in less than a week during half term, when the academy was not in use. The football club’s academy, which hosts about 100 8-19-year-olds from the club’s representative teams, has since achieved Category 2 academy status under the English FA’s Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP).

Scottish college selects Gerflor for refurbishment

Sports flooring specialist Gerflor has completed a challenging sports hall refurbishment at the Oatridge Campus of Scotland’s Rural College in West Lothian. The floor had to be installed on the concrete base of a former tractor shed. Construction consultancy Thomas and Adamson selected Gerflor’s Taraflex Sport M Evolution flooring, installed with Gerflor’s Dry-Tex system, which uses the hall’s high moisture content as an essential part of the bonding process.

Blakedown Sport & Play was awarded a contract to build a full size, 3G football pitch at the new £18m Portway Lifestyle Centre in Oldbury, West Midlands.

SIS wins pitch contract for first European Olympics

The pitch at the Azerbaijan stadium hosting the first European Olympics in 2015 will be designed and built by SIS Pitches. The Cumbrian company will construct one training pitch as well as the stadium pitch at Baku Olympic Stadium in time for the games. Both pitches will be natural grass, although the stadium pitch will use 20mm turf from Germany. The contract was won by the firm’s eastern European team, SIS EE, which is led by Ilyas Kobal. The games were designed and are to be regulated by the European Olympic Committees.

World Cup stadiums are using Redexim machines

Redexim Charterhouse products have been at the forefront of preparatory work for the 12 pitches being used at the upcoming World Cup in Brazil. The company’s Turf Stripper machines were used to ‘fraise mow’ the pitches, removing turf, weeds and thatch in one pass. Other equipment also ‘verticut’ and thinned out surfaces down to the roots. Redexim’s Speedseed machines then provided overseeding, both over large areas and on fine turf.

Work starts at new Bolton playing fields

Duncan Ross has begun work on four new pitches at a £474,000 sports development in Bolton. The Lancashire-based specialist sports field contractor is fully draining the site at Hulton Lane prior to construction of the pitches, of which two are for adults, one is for youth football and one is for juniors. It is also anticipated that the pitches will be used by rounders players in the summer, while a multi-use games area has also been proposed.

Durability of tufted artificial pitches tested

Tufted synthetic turf cricket surfaces are nearly twice as durable as woven ones, according to new research. Test specialist Labosport subjected two Notts Sports surfaces – NottsGrass NG12 and NottsGrass NG7 – to rigorous abrasion testing and then compared the results to a woven surface. The Notts Sport surfaces suffered a percentage mass loss of 7.914 and 8.144 percent of their original weight, while the woven surface lost 14.985 percent. The research was based on a British Standard test used by the ECB.
