Work has begun on new 3G pitch developments across three sites in Ceredigion, worth £794,000.

The three pitches are replacing existing pitches in two leisure centres and a primary school to provide higher quality surfaces for Ceredigion County Council which are specifically tailored to the highest standards in professional sport.

The pitches at Cardigan Leisure Centre and Synod Primary School have been designed to meet Welsh Rugby Union standards, as well as also meeting FIFA Quality standards. These sites will have a new 60mm 3G surface implemented, as well as an integrated shock pad.

The final 3G pitch at Lampeter Leisure Centre is also getting a total refresh, which is tailored to standards from the Fédération Internationale de Hockey. This will include a complete resurfacing of the sand dressed hockey pitch.

The projects were procured using the UK Leisure Framework, and will be carried out by the expert teams from Surfacing Standards Ltd. and South Wales Sports Grounds.

Alliance Leisure are delighted to support the creation of facilities that will provide communities in Ceredigion with top-quality surfaces on which they can play all manner of sports and keep active.
