It pays to be flexible

The beauty of multi-sport facilities is the flexibility they offer. Whether for local authority facilities or private sports clubs, they make maximum use of space for all sports lovers to enjoy, while keeping to tight budgetary requirements.

So Which Surface?

Sand-Filled artificial grass:

  • A diverse carpet range suitable for used for multi-sports, including hockey, football and tennis at a recreational level.
  • Available in a number of pile heights, the carpet can be laid on different depths of shockpad depending on the sports application.
  • We offer polypropylene (PP) or LSR yarn to cater for a range of budgets and project specifications. See diagram.


This type of surface has been expertly engineered to suit the demands of multi-sports areas. This two-layer construction of macadam base and wearing courses provides a porous, frost-resistant alternative to synthetic grass. Water percolates quickly through the wearing course, allowing play to resume soon after heavy rainfall.

A tarmac surface is ideal for tennis, netball and basketball. See diagram.

Within this range we can offer:

  1. A durable tarmac surface with lines painted to suit client requirements.
  2. A tarmac surface with a colourful, slip-resistant acrylic-coated wearing surface in a range of colours.
  3. A polymeric rubber surface, installed over an engineered tarmac base, providing a cushioned rubber-granule finish. This provides a highly resilient, comfortable playing surface, suitable for all weathers, and comes in a range of colours.

3rd Generation:
