McArdle Sport Tec were selected to install a state-of-the-art all-weather pitch and three netball courts at The Blandford School.

The new pitch was funded in part by grants from the Premier League, the FA Facilities Fund and Dorset County Council. The project also included the refurbishment of three netball courts and the installation of floodlights.

Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said “Congratulations to The Blandford School for working with the Dorset County FA to secure this Premier League & The FA Facilities Funding.”

TigerTurf’s Total Turf 40 XQ carpet, made in the UK, was the best solution to provide the school with a quality surface suitable for both football and hockey.

Project Stats:
1 3G pitch (7420 sq. m area)
3 Netball Courts
Perimeter Fencing & Floodlighting

Sally Wilson, Headteacher at The Blandford School commented:

“On behalf of The Blandford School, I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the work your team has been involved with in respect of our new artificial grass pitch and the refurbishment to our netball courts. The work has been completed on schedule and to a high standard. The support from Richard Thornton and Paul Lockyer throughout the project was exceptional, and we would have no hesitation in recommending your organisation should that be helpful in the future. Please pass on our thanks to the entire project team.”

Despite being a complicated project due to being located within a conversation area and bordering a flood plain, the work was completed ahead of schedule.
