Case Study: Marchwood Parish Council Lloyd Recreation Ground  

3G Artificial Turf for Football

Marchwood is a developing and thriving village situated between Totton and Hythe on the western shore of Southampton Water. The Lloyd Recreation Ground is very much the village’s sporting hub, hosting a wide range of sports and play activities for the community.

S&C Slatter was asked to refurbish a tarmacadam tennis court, converting it to a 36m x 18m 5 a side football pitch. A 60mm 3G football turf was selected as the most appropriate playing surface incorporating low maintenance inlaid line markings. The existing surface was power cleaned and pierced through to the foundation stone at regular intervals to improve vertical drainage. These works enabled the artificial turf to be installed directly over the tarmacadam without the need for more extensive works.

The perimeter was also upgraded with a new walling and fencing system.


3G Artificial Turf for Football. 672m2.

Preparation of the existing tarmacadam surface. Inlaid line marking for 5 a side football. Provision of new 3m perimeter fencing incorporating roll form weld mesh and 18mm Wisa board rebound panels.

Marchwood Parish Council and The Trustee to the Lloyd Recreation Ground are absolutely delighted with the new 3G court at the Lloyd Recreation Ground. It has proved very popular with the residents young and old and is proving to be an asset to the Community.
