3rd Generation (3G) Artificial Grass Pitch Project - Woodford Park
The new 3G pitch was completed in May 2016 and formally opened by the Mayor, Councillor Jenny Cheng at a 'Festival of Football' event on Friday 3 June.
This exciting project was made possible through a grant of £277,200 from the Premier League and Football Association Facilities Fund and a £255,000 loan taken out by the Council.
The 3G pitch provides a first class, professional playing surface and we are working with local clubs and national sporting organisations to develop football in Woodley.
The surface also enables us to provide a varied programme of sport and fitness activities for the community as a whole, including activities for those less mobile or with disabiliites.
The 3G pitch will be an integral part of the Council’s sports provision and will also provide income to support Council services.
This project included:
Installation of a 3G Artificial Grass Pitch
This comprises one full size 9 a-side competition football pitch which can be divided in to three smaller pitches for training. The pitch will have a secure enclosure complete with acoustic board fencing and floodlighting.
Resurfacing of tennis court
The tennis courts was resurfaced providing a brand new, high quality playing surface for Tennis and Netball - hirable to the public.
Provision of 59 new car parking spaces
The creation of an additional parking area for visitors to the Centre and events in the Park.
Resurfacing of the Leisure Centre car park
Complete resurfacing and re-marking of the old car park to provide a welcoming and safe environment for visitors to the Centre.
