Earlier this year Wolfe Tones GAA rolled out plans for resurfacing their existing all-weather pitch in Shannon, Co. Clare. This is a major investment and one that will take the club from strength to strength; “The new pitch will offer people a world-class facility to enjoy in all weathers, throughout the day and evening. This is mainly for our players so we can train all year round, improve players health and fitness and make us competitive in all age groups.”
PST Sport is delighted to be involved in such a significant development. Aided by the Sports Capital Grants Programme, the resurfacing project will begin with the removal and safe disposal of the existing carpet. Once this initial stage is complete a PST Base survey will be carried out to assess the condition of the existing sub base.
PST Base use highly innovative surveying and thermal mapping techniques to map out the pitch surface below ground. This allows us to assess the true condition of the surface and what condition the sub base is in. By identifying how a pitch base was constructed and the subgrade/formation condition we can then formulate a new cost-effective design to remedy the sub base and provide a long-lasting pitch base.
Once ground preparation works are complete, Phase 2 will see the installation of 6,000 sq/m of SUPERB 60 carpet and shock pad. We are delighted to continue our partnership with CCGrass, the world’s largest producer of artificial grass.
Superb 60 is a specially designed surface, featuring the advanced Superb yarn, which is stronger, softer and more resilient than other fibres. This is supported by a special “Thatch” yarn that curls down within the system, to act like roots in natural turf. This helps to create a more stable and player friendly base, ideal for GAA and rugby. All CCGrass pitches are heavily tested, before and after installation, ensuring Wolftones GAA has the best possible synthetic turf pitch.
