Notts Sport originally met with Woodkirk Academy in 2010 and over a 5 year period supported the Academy in developing a comprehensive business plan for a new FIFA, World Rugby, GAA & Rugby League compliant 3rd Generation (3G) Artificial Grass Pitch. The existing natural turf pitches were in a very poor condition, and were unusable from November to March each year.

Using the state of the art ShockWave EcoBase technology, Woodkirk Academy were the first customer in the world to have the system installed, and in challenging site and weather conditions the project was completed over winter 2015/16.

The finished facility has received high praise from users of the pitch, the wider synthetic turf industry and National Governing Bodies, highlighting the innovation that Notts Sport aims to bring to the customer sector on every scheme.

Facility specification:
• NottsGrass 60
• ShockWave EcoBase
• 150mm MOT non frost susceptible aggregate lower base
