Synthetic Turf MUGA

Watlington, Oxfordshire

Increasing Community Capacity

Following the submission of a formal tender response, Fieldform were appointed by Watlington Parish Council to break out an existing macadam sports court and construct a new, multi-use sports facility.

The existing facility suffered with drainage issues and didn’t offer a suitable facility for the local community including resident sports clubs. To create a facility that could be used throughout the year by a wide range of users we put forward a design that offered the following:

  • Significantly expanded playing area – suitable for a range of sports including small sided football and netball
  • Twin layer macadam surface
  • Rubber shock pad
  • Sand dressed synthetic surface – Desso Trophy Smart V2
  • Line markings for multiple sports including football, netball and basketball
  • LED floodlights
  • Heavy duty twin bar fence c/w rebound panels at ground level
  • Installation of commercial grade timber kick boards to protect the fence against the impact of high speed hockey balls

This project has created a vital space that is regularly used by local community groups including Watlington Football Club, Smur-Fit and Watlington Netball Club.

Through careful design we managed to keep all the spoil arisings on site using the excess soil to create a series of landscaped bunds around the new MUGA.

Client Testimonial

Fieldform provided a clear and concise tender return that offered good value combined with innovative design solutions. Throughout the works they were conscientious and provided regular updates on project progress. As the works were completed in the winter some of the reinstatement works were carried out recently, again to a very high standard. The local community are very lucky to have such a fine sports facility on their doorstep.
