High performance artificial turf fields for hockey
When installing a 2G hockey pitch, base preparation plays a pivotal role. The nature of the sport means that skilful game play is heavily reliant on surface conditions. The surface has to be fast, flat and predictable to enable play at high speed and at a top level – a slow pitch can hamper game play considerably.
PST Sport’s hockey pitches are designed for the highest levels of field hockey play. Our expert team ensures that each artificial hockey pitch is installed to the highest standards. With our vast experience in civil engineering and ground preparation works we can manage the entire project from consultation right through to professional maintenance.
Benefits of an artificial grass hockey pitch
The benefits of installing an artificial hockey pitch:
- Our artificial grass hockey pitches allow players to play to the highest standard all year round, regardless of weather conditions;
- The safe and even surface offers perfect playing conditions for quick passes and precise ball control. This allows for a consistent and correct ball roll which is vital in the sport;
- Maintenance is easy and extremely cost effective;
- Installing shock pad underneath the carpet results in comfortable shock absorption which reduces injuries due to heavy sliding.

Hockey pitch resurface for Gravesham Sports Trust
Recent projects include rebuilding a 20-year-old subsided hockey pitch for Gravesham Sports Trust in Kent. The pitch had become almost too dangerous for use. Underneath the surface there were significant areas of subsidence and pitch deformation and the organisation had struggled for some time to find a solution.
State-of-the-art hockey facility for Carmarthenshire County Council
We recently completed works on a 5,757 sq/m hockey pitch resurface at Actif Sport and Leisure for our client Carmarthenshire County Council. The project included a PST Base site survey to assess the condition of the subbase formation. This was followed by the removal and safe disposal of the old carpet prior to resurfacing with 15mm in-situ shock pad and high performance FastPro 18 hockey carpet. Ancillary works included the supply and installation of additional stone and tarmac to an extended area, new light bases and ducting, 1.2m spectator rails and 4.5m rebound fencing.
