Artificial Grass Rugby Pitches
Given the ongoing rise in popularity of rugby at all levels, PST Sport understand the impact that top-class facilities have on the development of a rugby club both within the local community but also by raising the club’s status and ultimately on-the-field success. We are now the preferred choice of rugby clubs and schools who are seeking to bring their training and playing facilities to the next level.
And with the challenges provided by the unpredictable weather, our artificial turf pitches are the necessary choice when it comes to seeking a weather-proof, safe and high-quality playing experience.
A PST Sport rugby turf pitch will not only add significantly to the development of your club at a playing level but will also open new opportunities for increased income by hiring your astro turf surface to other codes and to the public in the general.
Our artificial grass partner is CC Grass who, in March 2018, were appointed as a Preferred Synthetic Turf Producer by World Rugby. This ensures that all rugby pitch projects will have achieved specific performance criteria and attained key player welfare characteristics upon completion. CC Grass are now one of only three manufacturers worldwide with Preferred Producer status for FIFA, FIH & World Rugby further highlighting both our companies commitment to excellence.
In June 2015 PST Sport installed a World Rugby Approved artificial grass facility at Mullingar RFC. The project included:
- Full size pitch (8500m of rugby turf and shock pad) including all necessary groundworks, fencing & floodlights.
- IRB training pitch (2000m of rugby turf), shock pad, fencing and floodlights.
Our rugby turf surfaces are held in the highest regard by the top professional players and coaches in international rugby. Our synthetic grass pitch at Mullingar RFC in particular has received on-going recognition from figures such as Joe Schimdt and the Irish Rugby team.
In December 2017 we completed the installation of a full size rugby turf surface at Clongowes Wood College in Clane, County Kildare. World Rugby certification followed in early January 2018.
