Draining Your Pitch Properly

Poorly drained soils on pitches are affecting the playability of the playing fields especially during periods of heavy rainfall and during the winter period. Pitches with good construction specifications that are not properly maintained also inevitably end up having poor drainage qualities. Implementing the right solution is crucial to ensure your playing surface is playable all year round.

Poor Specification & Water holding

It is important that a drainage problem on a playing surface is properly assessed to ensure the correct solution is provided for. This should be independently assessed by a consultant rather than advised by a service provider implementing the solution.

Saturated playing fields during the winter period prohibit much needed outdoor sporting activity for users and club facility owners revenue and participation in sport is negatively affected.
