INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF PRAGUE

Getting maximum use from a sports facility is a common consideration for many within the education sector. So, with regular bad weather rendering its existing pitch out of action for much of the winter, the International School of Prague (ISP) recently looked to a solution that would provide adequate playing time all year round.

Due to soil type and weather conditions, the school’s natural grass facility had to be closed from November until March each year. During that time the pitch was unusable, forcing staff to take lessons or extracurricular activities elsewhere for a significant portion of the academic calendar.

Recognising the problem, ISP began to work on a solution that would not only extend its own use of the space, but enable it to open out the facility to others in the local area. The school appointed specialist contractors, A Sport Produkt, to lend their expertise to the project.

With ISP needing a high quality football product that would also serve for a multitude of other sports, the group specified TigerTurf’s Premier Pro 60. Built to conform to the FIFA Quality Pro mark, the impressive design of the artificial grass surface meant the school could benefit from the exceptional performance needed, as well as up to 38 hours playing time each week.

As the first full-size installation of one of TigerTurf’s 3G surfaces in the Czech Republic, the project was an instant success. Immediately, the school was able to get more from the space, with the facility now open every day during the academic year. Better still, ISP soon began to receive offers from local sports clubs and community groups who were interested in using the surface.

As interest in further rentals continues to grow, this has opened up a new revenue stream for the school – enabling a quick return on its investment.

Joe Monks, the school’s Activities Director, commented: “Our old field could only be used during the school day between September and November, before it was then closed until March. It was clear we needed a new, multi-use games area to accommodate the school’s growing sport offering for a longer period of the academic year.

“This versatility was key when it came to designing the new pitch. Instead of two football pitches, we went for a combination of colours and lines to maximise the possibilities for use.

“The new sports field is now open every day of the school year, even in the winter and after bad weather. On top of that, the facility has attracted numerous sports clubs that we now rent it out to. At the moment, the additional revenue we make from the pitch stands at around £5,000 a year, which helps to offset ongoing maintenance costs and ensure we can keep the facility in perfect shape.”


 

Replay’s AquaTrax process keeps Lillieshall’s synthetic pitches in ‘tip-top’ condition. 

Lillieshall is one of the UK’s National Sports Centres and centres of excellence. The centre is host to some of the country’s leading sports activities like Archery, Gymnastics and Hockey.  Within the 350 acre site are 2 synthetic pitches, a water based hockey pitch and a multi-sport surface.  Grounds Supervisor Peter Bolland, and his team of 6 including an apprentice, have their work cut out ensuring all the facilities meet their rigorous requirements and are kept performing at their best – which they do with the help of Replay Maintenance.

“The centre has a rich history,” explains Peter, “and having previously been on the English Heritage at Risk Register, but following a management plan set up back in 2013, the team are now working on a long term 21 year master plan, to bring the site back to the 1830’s when the Duke of Sutherland would have been prevalent. The majority of maintenance work, including pitch renovations, is conducted in-house and this is no different when it comes to the regime on the artificial surfaces.  We do cleaning, drag-mat/brushing and removal of debris on a daily and weekly basis, but as a training facility for GB Hockey and other international teams alike we like to go that step further and have Replay in to conduct a deep clean at least once a year.”

Their most recent visit saw Replay utilising their unique AquaTrax process on the two synthetic pitches.  This process combines pressure washing and vacuum extraction to dislodge and remove dirt and algae growth. The annual work also ensures that the surfaces pass the Centres twice-yearly audits. 

Replay have been working with Lillieshall for a number of years and Peter says that, moving forwards, he has no reason to change that. “It tends to be the same guy visit each year.  He’ll report in and, unless there are any issues, he’ll just crack on with the job – there are times we don’t even know he’s there! They do such a great job, right from the initial quote and advice through to the actual work - they’re knowledgeable, always really helpful and work together with us in meeting the standards for the pitches and our facility as a whole.”
