During the 2019-2020 pre-season, South Wales Sports Grounds (SWSG) renovated the Parc Y Scarlets stadium pitch from an existing fibre elastic / sand surface to a top of the range patented hybrid system.

The Parc Y Scarlets, home to the Llanelli Scarlets, was renovated and remodelled to a domed finish constructed using the latest LPS positional technology.

Alongside Support in Sport (SIS), SWSG removed the existing fibre sand and rootzone replaced with a new stitched and natural grass combo providing a technologically advanced, reinforced turf.

“We would have no hesitation in recommending SWSG to carry out installation of Hybrid pitches and 4G synthetic Surfaces”

The project in Eastern High, Cardiff was a multi construct project with the installation of a full-size FIFA and World Rugby quality 3G surface, 2 large-scale tarmac multi-use-games-areas and a natural grass surface. The project was completed with the main contractor, Willmott Dixon.

The natural surface was built alongside the other facilities and provided a playing surface for the needs of the school’s rugby, football, hockey teams and many more.

The grass pitch was built as a Sport England Type 4 grass surface and therefore has both primary and secondary drainage, pitch dressing sand and grass seed & fertilizer.

On Behalf of Caerphilly County Borough Council, South Wales Sports Grounds (SWSG) were commissioned to install a new Third Generation synthetic surface for use by Blackwood Comprehensive School and the surrounding area. The project involved the removal of the old existing ATP surface, drainage system and floodlighting columns in exchange for a larger World Rugby compliant all-weather pitch.
The plateau required a considerable cut and fill process as well as new connections and accessways to suit the new footprint. In addition to a newly installed 8m High Fence / net configuration the surface was installed with a new floodlighting system, dynamic stone base, synthetic shockpad and a surface line-marked for rugby, football and small sided football. Works were completed and managed by SWSG in-house personnel throughout
