After almost four months of intensive labour from GreenFields the new multi sports development has been officially launched at the Bury Grammar Schools.

Their exciting new facilities include a 3G pitch, a full size volleyball/basketball court along with four tennis courts which can also be utilised for hockey. To complete the development is a 50m sprint track with long jump and triple jump facilities and a running track which encompasses the volleyball/basketball court.

The facilities, although based in the boys’ school and primarily for boys’ use are also being used by pupils from the girls’ School and pre-school.

With a first class facility now up and running for their pupils, Bury Grammar School couldn’t be happier with their new surfaces completed by GreenFields. Richard Marshall, Headmaster at Bury Grammar School Boys commented: “This is possibly the biggest sports development to happen in Bury for a very long time. The investment, not only for Bury Grammar School pupils, but also for the wider community is testament to our commitment to increasing sports participation and excellence.”

“The new facilities have allowed Bury Grammar School to train and therefore play at the highest level in a range of sports due to the flexibility that the 3G, Sand filled AstroTurf and Muga provide. The areas have totally changed the perception of school sport and has allowed the PE Department and the boys to be aspirational.”

The official launch which took place at the end of September was attended by over 90 guests including school representatives, VIP guests and donors plus a selection of the Governors.

With the 2014 Hockey World Cup surface- TX SW installed for their MUGAs (volleyball/basketball court and tennis courts) and our top spec product MX TriMension 50 utilised for their 3G pitch; the school selected world class surfaces that have been used by a number of professional clubs across the globe.

Mark Bucknall, Project Manager at GreenFields who was responsible for this development commented on the completed facilities: “This project has been an exciting one to be involved in; to install not just one elite surface but multiple world class surfaces at one site has been a great experience. The completed facilities look fantastic and will provide Bury Grammar pupils with a state-of-the-art sports campus for many years to come.”

With the facilities completed and looking pitch perfect, GreenFields visited the school again for both professional photos and a drone video which you can watch above, we also edited together a timelapse of some of this exciting project being installed. You can watch the timelapse video here.
