Bridgtown Primary School, Cannock is a mixed school for children from nursery age up to 11 years old. The school had only a small area for any outdoor play facilities, and were looking for a solution where different sports could be played upon it, as well as being able to be utilised by the children to run around on at playtimes. Playrite have a well deserved pedigree in helping to create such a facility, with a number of products that have been designed specifically for multi-use games areas.
Tournament 18 is a sand dressed, tufted knit de knit polypropylene pile yarn product that provides an excellent playing surface for sports including hockey and multi-sport use. With excellent durability and hardwearing properties, the surface will take the heavy use that the school demands of it. Tournament 18 is available with inlaid lines to mark out a range of different sports meets EN15330 part 1 and FIH approval.
The project was constructed from scratch on the site of an existing Tarmac playground. The new area has provided a much needed facility allowing all year round outdoor activity on a comfortable, hard wearing sports surface.
