Warrington Wolves

The Project

  • Thornton Sports were appointed to install a high performance 3G artificial grass surface within the club’s new purpose-built structure at the University of Chester’s Warrington Padgate campus. This will sit alongside other training facilities already on site including a purpose-built gym, coaching and physio rooms, running track and training field. 

The Product 

  • The surface chosen for the new 1350m² pitch was Thornton Sports’ in-house UK manufactured Rugby Pro M product, over a 20mm deep in-situ rubber shockpad layer.
  • This surface meets the performance requirements of IRB regulation 22, which confirms its suitability for full-contact Rugby. Football can also be played on the surface, as confirmed by IATS certification.

 The Client

Professor Steven Broomhead, Chairman of Warrington Wolves, comments:

 “From start to finish Thornton Sports delivered a great level of service. Communication was regular, queries were responded to promptly and the facility was delivered within a very tight timescale. Our players couldn’t wait to get onto the new surface and have used it day-in, day-out since project completion. It plays fantastically and will be an invaluable resource in terms of player development”.
