Royal Holloway University of London has a strong commitment to sport from encouraging recreational sport and keeping fit to supporting world-class athletes. There are some 60 sports clubs for students to join, ranging from football to lacrosse to ninjutsu and ultimate frisbee.
S&C Slatter was selected to deliver an outstanding new build development of the sports centre facilities, constructing state of the art artificial turf pitches for football & rugby and hockey & lacrosse, together with tarmacadam Tennis/Netball courts and a Multi-use Games Area.
The combined full size football and rugby pitch features a high technology 3G artificial turf system while the hockey & lacrosse pitch uses a sand-dressed texturised monofilament artificial turf.
In both cases the playing surface was installed over a specially designed in-situ bound performance layer, and the sand dressed pitch also incorporates a tarmacadam engineered sub-base.
