CLS Sports Break Ground at Terrington Hall

back to list

01 June 2017

After a year of planning and preparations, the construction of Terrington Halls' new sand-dressed synthetic turf pitch is now underway. This is the school's first major development for almost 20 years and will revolutionise the hockey provision for its 166 pupils aged 3-13 years.
The cutting of the sod was carried out by Terrington Hall’s Chairman of Governors, Rodger Hobson, along with the School Bursar, Adrian Upton. CLS Sports’ Contract Director, Stephen Miller and Business Development Manager, Andrew Miller were also in attendance to celebrate the first day of construction.

CLS Sports was highly recommended to Terrington Hall by other independent schools in the North-East and throughout the tender process the family-run business proved themselves knowledgeable, responsive to the client’s needs and highly experienced in the provision of all-weather sports surfaces - in particular, hockey pitches.  The school were also impressed by the company’s professionalism, personal touch and customer care.

The project marks a very exciting time for Terrington Hall and is indicative of the school’s sporting success over recent years. Although a small school, the expertise of its sports staff together with the drive and ambition of its pupils has ensured that Terrington regularly competes successfully against much larger schools.

Located at the rear of the school grounds the new pitch will sit on a sunken plateau overlooking the picturesque Howardian Hills. The 80x40m facility will be installed on an engineered base with an insitu rubber shock-pad and will accommodate hockey, tennis and netball.

This week CLS Sports will strip the topsoil of the existing pitch and carry out the cut and fill earthworks before the construction of the pitch base commences next week. Once complete the synthetic turf pitch will significantly enhance the school’s provision for its current and future pupils and secure the school’s position as the prep school of choice in the area.
