Synthetic sports pitches are the cutting edge solution helping schools across the UK to provide better facilities, help their sports teams be more successful and generate more money while creating closer links with their local communities.

The latest developments in synthetic sports pitch solutions means that they are the perfect option for schools that have to meet the needs of lots of different teams while balancing tight budgets. One of the biggest benefits they deliver is that they last longer with less maintenance so not only do they cut your maintenance costs they’re available for use a lot more meaning your teams can practice more often and up their chances of success. It also means you can hire out the pitch to local sports teams when you’re not using it so you create better links with the local community and generate more income for the school.

The fact that we live in a country where it rains a lot need not be a problem anymore either as the drainage system that the synthetic pitch sits on top of mean that water-logged and flooded pitches can be a thing of the past.

We recently installed a synthetic “Mondo” 6 lane 400m IAAF and UK Athletics track with associated field facilities and a full size FIFA compliant pitch on the infield at The Eastwood Academy and they’re thrilled with it, saying: “We were very impressed with O’Brien Contractors from start to finish. They assisted us with ideas in our design phase and were not only timely in their completion but the quality of the work was outstanding. We have had many people visit our facility and have been continually informed that our track is of a superior quality to that of major international stadiums.”

You’re probably thinking such a smart synthetic turf pitch is way out of your budget but it’s more affordable than you think. You can find out more in the brochure we’ve created, please see link below, about the benefits, the costs and the potential income you could expect to get over the five year term that you’re paying for the pitch. Obviously, you’ll might need to adapt the income figures a bit to match your school but it’ll give you an idea.
