The new Astroturf surface will provide players with a field that meets the standards set by professional body, England Hockey. Now its open to you.
The Astroturf has had extensive improvements made to its construction to help resolve previous drainage issues. The surface has been independently tested and meets all specifications and requirements outlined by England Hockey. Over the course of the next two weeks any sand on the upper part of the surface will work its way down deeper into the fiber which will be aided by footfall.
Although this particular surface is now ready for play this is by no means the official completion of the project. Work is continuing to push on with the remaining artificial surfaces whilst adding finer touches and details to the facilities over the coming months. Completion of the Sports Pavilion in June/July 2017 will signify the end of the external project.
At the end of November work is due to begin on laying the foundations for the new Sports Pavilion that will become our hub for changing, catering and meetings. It will offer a fantastic game day and training experience for players, coaches and spectators. Keep a look out on Hull Campus Life for details of a formal opening and celebrations which will take place in Spring 2017. You can stay up to date with progress of the project on the Sport and Fitness Centre SharePoint site.
