Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh celebrated the launch of their new TX pitch at the beginning of September just in time for the start of the new academic year and the pupils returning to school.

As a prestigious boarding school, Merchiston Castle wanted to provide its pupils with the best possible sporting facility to maximise opportunities for them. With GreenFields TX recognised worldwide as an elite hockey surface and top clubs opting for it as well as it being the official playing surface for the 2014 Hockey World Cup, this was the obvious choice for the school.

GreenFields offers a full design and installation service in both England and Wales, whereas in Scotland we operate on a supply only basis. Sportsmasters UK were responsible for the construction and installation of this sand dressed hockey surface, former Merchiston Castle pupil, Contracts Manager, Kenny Campbell commented: “The facility is magnificent and will give the school a much needed sports facility when weather renders other pitches unavailable.”

With play on the pitch now in full flow, the school is maximising its usage with a number of physical activities as well as hockey taking place on it including football, tennis and more.
