SIS Pitches are proud to have recently completed 2 sites for Active Nation, Yarborough and Birchwood Leisure Centres. Across 2 locations, SIS Pitches installed 2 new 3G football pitches and renovated a hockey pitch and running track.

The project was officially opened on August 17th at an official opening day held by Lincoln City Council. 

£1.8million was invested from the Premier League, FA facilities fund and the Sport England community asset fund to install 2 full-size pitches with SISTurf Xtra, manufactured using SISTurf’s most robust and popular fibrillated yarn, which is FIFA Quality standard. It is predicted that the pitches will see 50-85 hours worth of use every week.

Yarborough Leisure Centre is one of the first locations in the UK to benefit from a high performance running track from SIS Pitches. The porous track is made of three layers; a shock pad underlay, rubber granule base which is the main body of the track, and a polyurethane top-coat which provides more stability to the surface, acting as a binding agent. The durable surface can withstand around 50,000 athlete user hours per year which provides a hard-wearing, cost-effective surface for general use of athletic clubs, school and colleges in Lincoln.

We’re excited to be a part of such a huge project that will have a big effect on the football, hockey and athletics landscape around Lincoln.

The new surfaces will allow the local teams both junior and adult to play on quality pitches, having a positive effect on the local community and encouraging more participation in sport.

The support of the Premier League, The FA and government enables the Football Foundation to help improve community sports facilities like this one across the country. Their funding has played a key role in delivering these new all-weather pitches in Lincoln and I am delighted for everyone associated with the City of Lincoln Council.

This is one example we want to make people in Lincoln aware of, that they have the kind of quality pitches and changing rooms that are taken for granted in other cities. We will continue to support projects nationwide, but we cannot do this on our own, so we are encouraging organisations in the area to join our movement to deliver quality football facilities for people in Lincoln once and for all.

Taking part in community sport at any level offers many benefits and rewards, not least the opportunity for people to enjoy themselves and socialise with different members of the community.
