Sports Surfaces UK – Creating The Perfect Surface For Sports

Sports surfaces UK wide undergo a wide range of challenges as part of their daily work. From continuous heavy footfall to balls being bounced, hit and kicked across them, they need to be able to withstand anything that is, quite literally, thrown at them. The ability to do this is just one of the benefits of artificial surfacing.

One of the most common artificial sports surfaces for use on tennis and outdoor basketball courts is polymeric surfacing. It is the number one choice of schools, sports clubs and community groups because it is hardwearing, porous and impact absorbent. This means that the synthetic surfacing will provide value for money, while minimising the risk of serious injury following a sports related accident. This type of synthetic sports surfacing is created from rubber and has a structure that is similar to that found in wet pour children’s playground surfacing. The main adaptation comes in the form of the top layer of rubber. In sports surfaces, this is thinner and therefore provides a firmer footing for athletes, improving safety by reducing slipping during running, jumping and kicking movements. The further addition of an anti-slip spray means that sports matches are not weather dependent. Combined with the porous abilities of the polymeric surface, games and matches can take place come rain or shine. When installed by professional surfacing contractors, the rubber sports surfacing work can be combined with other groundwork, including line marking. Combined with the installation of appropriate fencing and netting, this means that the pitch can become multi-purpose, reducing the times it isn’t in use and therefore providing further value for money.
