Thornton Sports to construct facilities for the London Legacy Communities Scheme

Plans are in place to construct a new bridge to connect Gainsborough Primary School in Hackney with playing fields and sports facilities proposed as part of the Legacy Communities Scheme. Thornton Sports are delighted to have recently been awarded a contract to construct 3 new facilities as part of this scheme.

Requirements include construction of a new 3G synthetic grass 5-a-side facility in addition to the construction of 2 new polymeric multi use games areas. One of the multi use games areas will be surfaced with a ‘Type 3’ surface making it ideal for netball usage.The second multi use games area will be surfaced with a ‘Type 4’ surface, as the facility will be used for football and other sports. Furthermore, the dedicated 5-a-side facility will be surfaced with our in-house UK manufactured SoccerTurf 60F 3G sand/rubber filled synthetic grass surface, which is ideal for football use.

This will be the second scheme Thornton Sports have undertaken which is related to London 2012, having resurfaced an athletics training facility for the US Olympic Committee in the lead up to the Games. Works are due to commence in Hackney in just a few weeks time. For further information regarding high performance MUGA installations just follow the link or call 01282 777 345.
