Penzance Hockey Club Now Home To State Of The Art Playing Surface


Notts Sport’s impressive national brand reaches out as far as Penzance, Cornwall.

Completed in March 2014, this striking International standard green and blue sand dressed turf well and truly puts Penzance Hockey Club on the map. Already highly regarded in the South West, Penzance HC will now be renowned around the country thanks to their new state of the art Notts Sport synthetic pitch.

The original pitch was constructed in 2000 and following a series of performance tests by Notts Sport it was clear that the surface had reached the end of its lifecycle after 13 years of use. Notts Sport worked with the Club for several months to aid in securing the necessary funding to replace the pitch surface from the existing EH category 3 sand filled surface to an upgraded EH category 2 sand dressed surface.

During the construction process and following on site key stage inspection carried out by Notts Sport it was also deemed necessary to replace the performance shock pad layer, so in their project managers role, Notts Sport specified and instructed the addition of a new insitu rubber shock pad (performance control layer), offering long term performance and peace of mind for the Club and maximising the performance in combination with the elite standard new surface.

The Cornwall Junior Club Of The Year for the 2009/2010 season now has a pitch to be proud of thanks to England Hockey’s Official Partners.
