Tameside Council Selects GreenFields for Another Perfect Pitch

Tags:Football · Tufted

Following the completion of the stadium pitch at Hyde United F.C. this Summer, GreenFields were selected to install another new pitch as part of Tameside Council and Active Tameside’s £20m investment into getting the borough more physically active.

The council were delighted with the end result at Hyde and approached GreenFields about a resurface at one of Tameside’s leisure centres, Active Copley, part of the Active Tameside brand.

“We are really happy with the new pitch, which will play a part in our work to encourage the people of Tameside to be more physically active.”

Mark Tweedie, Chief Executive, Active Tameside

With the selection of Slide Max XQ 50 Plus- a product perfect for high usage, work began at Active Copley in August. As the school term was fast approaching and group bookings for pitches starting to come in, GreenFields worked hard to deliver the new pitch, on time, in a matter of weeks.

Slide Max XQ fibres have been designed in the shape of a diamond with a ribbed surface to provide an advanced, ultra-durable turf with high resilience and increased comfort and safety. Perfect for pitches that experience consistent playing and constant wear, Slide Max XQ can withstand frequent use for many years.

Now open for public and community use, Cllr Ged Cooney, Tameside Council Executive Member responsible for health and leisure, said: “I’m delighted that we now have another great pitch in Tameside that is bringing people together and benefitting the social and healthy lifestyles of all ages within our community.”
