Case story

Westhoughton High School

Bolton, UK

Location: Bolton, UK

Product: GreenFields Slide Max Pro 60

Date: Spring 2017

Project Description:

Bolton Council selected local company GreenFields to install a full sized 3G pitch at Westhoughton High School. The 116m x 74m (8584m²) pitch is being utilised to its full potential by both the school and the local community as an out of school hours leisure facility. The council chose GreenFields Slide Max Pro 60, a highly resilient sports turf which is perfect for dealing with increased activity levels. The pitch includes three sets of integral lines: white, yellow and blue to accommodate full sized rugby and football, with cross play 5 a side football. Finishing touches before the new sports pitch was unveiled included rebound sports fencing, 8 mast metal halide floodlighting system and new sports equipment including both football and rugby goalposts.

GreenFields offer a turnkey solution to our clients and constructed an engineered subbase with integral drainage including the installation of a ProGame 070 012 XC Trocellen shock pad for maximum safety and comfort. On completion, the new sports pitch successfully passed World Rugby Regulation 22 and FIFA Quality testing. Bolton Council were so impressed by the work of GreenFields on this project that they subsequently awarded them a second 3G pitch installation at Old Station Park in Horwich. Work has now started and will be completed in early 2018.
