School Sports Development Artificial Grass Pitches

What ever the reason you & your school would like an artificial grass sports pitch

“All Weather ” Artificial Grass Sports Pitch

An artificial grass sports surface is thought of a all weather surface. It can be used and designed for “all weathers” i.e. heating underneath etc this would be an extremely costly and a huge waste of resources. The synthetic sports surface can be used when natural turf would be too muddy , too wet or too hard/dusty.

Depending on budget, pupil ages, abilities and number of pupils an artificial grass sports surface can be adapted to suit. Sports surfaces can be designed to encourage movement and activities leading to the physical development of pupils but also encourage the development of skill necessary for more formal and competitive sports,

Younger pupils may require less formalized sports surface than a standard multi use games area (muga).  SSP synthetic sports surfaces  incorporates
