Context

Hove Park in East Sussex is popular with local residents, dog walkers and runners. The park covers almost 40 acres and features a mix of large areas of open grass, mature trees, flower beds and recreational facilities.

Brighton & Hove City Council wanted to upgrade the football pitch and appointed Essex-based ETC Sports Surfaces to the 70 x 31m pitch reconstruction.

The project consisted of the resurfacing of an existing artificial grass pitch (AGP) with a modern 3G artificial grass surface, fencing, pitch divider, sports equipment and associated works.

AGPs are commonly AstroTurf, but ETC combines this surface with their 3G surface to make a more durable pitch that is all-weather.

Products supplied

ETC worked alongside Desso Sports UK, who supplied the iQ3 50 artificial grass, while Zaun Ltd manufactured and provided 225m of its Duo8 Super Rebound sports fencing system plus two pairs of double gates and one single-leaf pedestrian gate.

Duo8 Super Rebound forms a robust play area that is highly durable, low maintenance and graffiti-proof, with great rebound properties similar to a wall, and rubber inserts between panels and posts to keep ‘rattle’ to a minimum during play.

Outcome

The 3G football surface is growing in popularity among clubs and schools as one of the best synthetic pitches.

3G pitches are split into two broad varieties: the dynamic base, which is a hardwearing, cost-effective choice of synthetic grass surface; or the non-abrasive engineered base, considered the optimum 3G pitch with the ideal look, feel and endurance, providing the right shock and slide performance. A major advantage of modern all-weather artificial pitches is their adaptability.
