The youth team at Lambeth Tigers (ages 6 – 18) now have a bright and energising pitch to enjoy. The distinctive pitch design was inspired by the club’s namesake, in a unique orange and black striped pitch, codesigned by Nike and professional England football player Jadon Sancho, who currently plays for Borussia Dortmund.
The exclusive pitch was manufactured in Cumbria at the new £1.8m SIS Pitches facility which utilises the latest technology in thermal insulation, LED lighting, laser-fire detection and advanced cladding systems, while the new PU backing plant is the most advanced turf backing system in the UK.
Myatt’s Fields is a Victorian park which spans over 14-acres in South London. The park includes a wildlife garden, café and play ground as well as fantastic sports facilities. The 3G pitch project was a resurface of an existing pitch, which now has all the latest pitch technologies, including an EPDM premium pitch infill, backed with SISBond Polyurethane.
The pitch has been installed using revolutionary hot melt technology, allowing for stronger, longer-lasting seams, to enhance the pitch durability. The installation was complex due to its dual coloured pattern and shapes but was completed within two weeks.
We are really proud to install a pitch that will help inspire young athletes. I’d like to give a special thanks to Jadon Sancho and Nike for the fantastic design and our installation team, as it was a particularly tricky installation, but their hard work has most certainly paid off.
