SYNTHETIC FIELDS EXPLODING IN POPULARITY

At the end of every football season, Pennant Hills Park looked more like a sandpit than a soccer pitch. A few tufts of grass behind the goal were the only greenery left on a pitch devastated by a full season of use.

“We would start playing on it in March and by mid-April it would be dirt,” Pennant Hills Football Club vice president Grahame Bateman said. “We would be scratching a line in the dirt with sticks. It was quite diabolical really. We used to refer to the ground as the Pennant Hills mudflats.”

STATE-OF-THE-ART SYNTHETIC ALL-WEATHER FIELD FOR LATHAM PARK • SOUTH COOGEE, NSW

cwad-admin

Randwick City Council awarded Polytan the contract to convert the traditional training field for Randwick Rugby at Latham Park, to a state of the art synthetic all-weather field.

Commencement of this project was a proud moment for Polytan as this continued our company’s involvement within the local area, having in recent years overhauled the fabulous neighbouring tennis centre!

It was a big decision for Council to commit to a dedicated synthetic field for rugby in Sydney, despite the proliferation of natural fields in New Zealand due to high usage and poor weather conditions. A smart design innovation was agreed to for Latham Park whereby a high wear ´scrum area´ was included where this essential activity could be conducted, just off the main field.

Polytan recognised this importance and took the responsibility very seriously to deliver a first class result.

Polytan along with stakeholders, Council and all end users could not be happier with the outcome and now rugby players can put the long hours into game training and preparation, without the concern of damaging the new synthetic field.

Polytan are thrilled to have been involved in the highly innovative, world class development of the dual synthetic sports field project at UQ Sport campus in St Lucia, Brisbane, Australia.

Polytan sports surfaces are truly built for performance and we look forward to seeing some amazing talent evolve from UQ Sport, following the installation of these amazing fields. Game On!
