Penrice Academy Boasts New Sand-Filled Sports Pitch


An academy in Saint Austell, Cornwall is now the owner of Notts Sport’s very own sand-filled multi-use synthetic playing surface. Penrice’s students can now be active on a new artificial area where sports including hockey, football, netball and tennis can be enjoyed. Thanks to Notts Sport’s personal customer service approach, the facility also includes storage space, so goals, nets and posts can be kept safe when the pitch is not in use.

The pitch replaced an existing redgra / shale pitch which was under used due to its age and performance in inclement weather. The redgra conversion to a fully compliant multi-use games area was designed to cater for all school curriculum sports. The pitch was completed in June 2014, and with permanent and semi-permanent pitch markings, the synthetic surface was ready to be home to a plethora of sports. Notts Sport do not only provide a high quality playing surface, they also look after the entire project for the customer. Penrice Academy is the perfect example of this as Notts Sport took the responsibility of providing a macadam access pathway to the pitch, 3m high ridged panel fencing system with integral rebound mesh, and 2m high ball stop catch netting. Notts Sport promises to deliver a holistic approach, and Penrice Academy is proof that the company can deliver.

Backed up by 30 years of success, Notts Sport is one of the leading names in the sport and play surfacing industry, and as Official Partner of England Hockey, Penrice Academy chose the ideal company to complete their project. Graeme Beattie, the Business Manager at Penrice Academy had this to say about Notts Sport: “On behalf of the academy, we are absolutely delighted with the finished project which has been completed to a very high standard. It has been a pleasure working with both CLS Sports and Notts Sport and the professionalism and support given to the academy by both companies, throughout the planning and construction phases has been of the highest order”.
