Case Study: Ratcliffe College

Polymeric Track and Long Jump for Athletics

Sand-dressed Artificial Turf Pitch for Hockey

Tarmacadam Multi-use Game Area

Ratcliffe College was founded by the Institute of Charity in 1847 and has a spirit of educational innovation which it traces back to founder Antonio Rosmini. Pupils are encouraged to participate in sport and traditional team games are considered to be a vital part of life and each pupil’s personal development.

Working in conjunction with Notts Sport, S&C Slatter has constructed a range of new sports facilities for the College featuring three different types of playing surface.

The existing athletics track and long jump area have been totally refurbished with a new 15mm polymeric athletics system installed over an engineered sub-base. Meanwhile a new full size FIH National Performance Standard artificial turf hockey pitch has also been built. The pitch uses a NottsGrass SD20 sand-dressed artificial turf playing surface and shock pad and is supplemented by a pitch divider system, floodlighting, perimeter fencing and access paths.

A new build 40.6m x 36.6m tarmacadam multi-use games area (MUGA) is now sited nearby and line marked for both netball and tennis. Rigid panel weld mesh fencing has been provided to the perimeter of the area.
