The FIH accredited Tiger Turf Evo PRO artificial turf sports pitch built by McArdle Sport-Tec Ltd is complete and in use and is a fantastic addition to St Andrew’s School, Pangbourne.
“We are very happy with our new sand-dressed pitch. McArdle completed it on budget and on time and were a great team to work with, I would definitely consider them again for future work. The finished pitch looks fantastic and the children are really enjoying the great surface. It gives us a playable surface whatever the weather and we find that as well as for hockey, junior football and lacrosse we also use it for PE and other sport activities all the way down the school enabling younger children to enjoy the outside space on a soft play surface when the normal grass is too wet or muddy to us.” Penny Franklin, Bursar
The official opening took place on St Andrews day by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, a former pupil of St Andrews. The future Queen took to the new playing field to partake in a hockey match with pupils.
