Prairie Sports Village, Burnley

Prairie Sports Village, Burnley

The Project

  • As part of a highly anticipated revamp of the area, Thornton Sports were appointed to carry out the installation of a new 3G synthetic grass pitch.  

  • The full scheme which was a partially lottery funded programme from Sport England, also includes a state of the art gym, 24 bay golf driving range, multi use studio and pro golf shop.

 The Works

  • The former redgra facility was in a poor condition and rarely in use. Burnley Borough Council requested a high performance pitch, specifically for playing football.

  • Our in-house UK manufactured SoccerTurf 60M 3G surface was chosen as it is IATS accredited as an ideal playing surface for football and is also suitable for rugby training or touch rugby.

  • Works also included installation of a macadam layer underneath the synthetic grass layer to maximise the longevity of the surface.

The Client

Winston Robinson of Burnley Borough Council says:

“Thornton’s are reliable, conscientious and very experienced in the provision of AGP’s. They are amenable to negotiation for additional works and are more than willing to give advice based on their vast experience. I have used the company twice and would not hesitate to use them again.”
