Artificial Rugby Pitch for Henley Rugby Club in the UK
Henley Rugby Gets an Exciting World Class Artificial Rugby Pitch
CCGrass artificial rugby pitch for Henley Rugby in the UK is compliant with World Rugby Regulation 22 and has received the World Rugby certificate.
Enabling about 55 hours of play per week, we’re pleased to see the synthetic rugby pitch serving the community well.
About the project
Henley RFC required a resurface of their artificial rugby pitch in the summer of 2020. Specialist contractors, A S Sports Systems, began by lifting the old grass and inspecting the existing shock pad.
However, with some remedial work, the new rugby turf surface is ready to be laid. The club was after something a little different and colourful, so they decided to go for a blue surface, and to add Rugby X pitch markings to make this the first permanent Rugby X pitch.
About the surface
The Max 60-15PU is made from C8 polymer, which means that it is stronger, more resilient, and softer than other artificial grass fibres, making it excellent for rugby use.
Apart from the exciting colour, this really is an advanced turf surface, with a stronger PU backing, which will benefit the current and next generation of children and adults that play on it, even more than the original surface did.
About Henley Rugby Football Club
Henley Rugby Football Club is a rugby union club based in Henley on Thames and is one of the leading clubs in the Thames Valley.
From mini members and their parents to our successful women’s team, to our semi-pro Hawks outfit, Henley RFC is a club that is built on clear foundations of contribution to the local community, where everyone is welcome and enjoys a good time.
What help did CCGrass give to the project
CCGrass attended the site to agree on the work that was necessary to upgrade the turf surface to a World Rugby approved system.
During the install, CCGrass UK CEO Bryn Lee visited the site and worked closely with the installation team to ensure a first-class artificial rugby pitch for the club.
On completion, Bryn attended the opening and continues to support the club through marketing opportunities and the occasional site visit.
Testimonial from club
‘We have been delighted with the feedback we’ve received for our new 4G rugby pitch, Invesco Turf from CCGrass. Not only has it been hugely appreciated by all of our teams at Henley RFC, but it has also been very well received by the local community, with various schools and organisations also benefitting from using it on a regular basis.
We would have no hesitation in recommending CCGrass to any club or organisation who is looking to install a synthetic turf playing surface. Their expertise, guidance and service throughout the whole process was first class.’
Quote from CCGrass
‘The chosen ‘new blue’ grass surface is more resilient and softer than other artificial grass fibres, making it excellent for rugby use. Apart from the vibrant colour, this really is an exciting field, with lines inlaid for Rugby X, football, and netball. We believe the new artificial rugby pitch will benefit the current and next generation of children and adults that play on it, even more than the original surface did.’
