Don’t let bad weather get in the way of activity
We understand that with the climate here in Ireland schools are finding it increasingly difficult to look after natural grass sports fields and play areas. Our artificial grass pitches are a game changer for schools and can transform an under utilised muddy pitch or neglected tarmacadam court.
How we can help
We specialise in the installation of artificial grass pitches for schools, colleges and universities across all levels and incorporating all field sports. Each school pitch installation is custom tailored to your individual requirements. Whether it’s a multi-use artificial grass pitch to accommodate a number of sports or a single use pitch for GAA, rugby, soccer or hockey, our experienced team will look after the entire project. We cover all aspects from planning to design to installation, right through to easy-to-follow maintenance programs. PST Sport also provide sports fencing and ball stop netting options.
Smaller school pitches
Many schools do not actually require a full-size pitch. For many of our school projects we install synthetic grass over smaller areas e.g. 60m x 40m (MUGAs) to accommodate a number of different sports. We can install synthetic grass over any size area, depending on the outside space you have available. Alternatively, we can transform concrete playgrounds or basketball courts to provide a clean, safe, all-weather play area to accommodate a number of different sports.
