Heolddu Leisure Centre, Mid Glamorgan

Project: Heolddu Leisure Centre, Mid Glamorgan

Heolddu Leisure Centre in Mid Glamorgan has a vision to improve the physical and cultural well being of the residents and visitors of Caerphilly County Borough. One way they achieve this is with the excellent facilities that they offer to the local community, including a swimming pool, fitness suite, sports hall, squash court, dance studio, sauna, and their recently updated multi use games area.


The leisure centre wanted a multi use games area that could be used throughout the day, every day of the week, regardless of weather conditions.  Caerphilly Council contacted South Wales Sports Grounds to install Playrite’s Conqueror 40, a 3G surface that is an excellent choice for football, hockey and multi sport. Overall, the centre had 6,100 m² of the artificial surface installed, which meets FIH and IATS performance standards as well as EN 15330 part 1, with Playrite’s Matchpad 2250 underlay installed underneath.


Nigel Powell of Caerphilly Council worked very closely with Playrite’s Sean Colbert to ensure the project went as smoothly as possible. He commented: “I have been extremely pleased with the Playrite Conqueror product and the installation provided by South Wales Sports Grounds. I am sure that the efforts of both companies will be a benefit to the local community for years to come”


This is the first of three projects that will see Caerphilly Council, South Wales Sports Grounds, and Playrite working together throughout the summer months. Both Playrite and South Wales Sports Grounds share a commitment to quality and over the years have established a reputation for professionalism, innovation and excellent customer service.
