Club Development Manager, Whitley Bay Rockcliff RFC
It is with great pleasure that Whitley Bay Rockcliff provide this testimonial for the professional excellence and great client service undertaken by SIS Pitches whilst installing an AGP365 pitch for the RFU. […]
We should not have worried – SIS Pitches more than delivered in both the quality of the pitch but also in delivering absolutely top class customer service and you have given an exciting boost to the club.
SIS Pitches professional standards and the AGP365 build quality were of course excellent but the extra win was how the AGP is integrated within the existing club facilities making the whole facility ‘as one’.
We have no hesitation in recommending sis Pitches for future RFU projects and recommending them for similar tasks to a new client. It was a pleasure working with your team – they were an absolute credit to your organisation being open and knowledgeable with a strong “can and will do approach” throughout. You are all top blokes and will always be welcome at Rockcliff.
In conclusion, my thanks to the SIS Pitches team for their contribution to making this project a great success and I know all at Rockcliff cannot wait to start pre-season training which must be a first. Thanks for helping Rockcliff continue to build our community club.Lawrence Fletcher, July 2018
Course Manager, Long Ashton Golf Club
‘Since being stitched with SISGrass, the tee on the par 3 13th at Long Ashton has seen improved surface consistency and stability. Surface damage is reduced through play, extending the usage and improving recovery time with less repair work. The SISGrass fibres blend naturally into the grass sward, improving the appearance of the tee after usage.’James Braithwaite, January 2018
Chairman, Lichfield City FC
I am writing to express my gratitude for the fantastic job that SIS Pitches team have done in installing our New 3G pitch.
[…] Although we paid for the 3G installation ourselves we wanted to use a contractor that was on the FA framework program, we felt this would give us some security that the company we chose would be very familiar with all aspects of installing a 3G pitch.
We met with 3 companies and decided on SIS Pitches pretty quickly, Joe Shaw was our first point of contact and he gave us the confidence that SIS Pitches were the right company to use. Joe has a great understanding of the customers needs and did everything he said he would do.
Our installation team Cameron Thompson, Gareth Hesp and Dean Patterson were a joy to work with. From day one there was always one of them on site managing the installation, offering updates and solving any problems. They were superb when it came to the situations that were unforeseen and always found a suitable solution.
I would recommend SIS UK Ltd to any prospective clients looking for a 3G pitch, just let them get on with it they are the experts.
Thank you from all at Lichfield City FC.Darren Leaver, November 2017
STADIUM MANAGER OXFORD CITY F.C.
New SISTurf pitch installation to meet FIFA Quality Pro standards at Court Place Farm, Oxford City F.C
A lot of planning and hard work has gone into this project over a long period of time which has now come to fruition, creating one of the best football facilities in the home counties.
We worked very closely with SIS Pitches to ensure that a 1st class facility was created in a tight deadline, enabling us to be fully ready for the 2017/18 season in the Vanarama National League South.
With over 40 teams using the extensive facilities here we hope that all sides benefit from the playing surface and have a successful season.
SIS Pitches demonstrated an excellent understanding of our requirements and their team were very accommodating with the existing facilities that needed to stay open on the site. With 100 apprentices and a busy thoroughfare of users SIS Pitches and Matthew Hodgson the Site Manager in particular worked really closely with us to ensure a safe and well managed environment.Frank Thompson, August 2017
CEO OF OLYMPIACOS ACADEMY
We are very pleased by choosing to cooperate with SISGrass in order to establish the hybrid system. Firstly because we improved and upgraded the pitch in our stadium ‘Georgios Karaiskakis’. Secondly because of their professionalism they managed to perform in difficult circumstances and to accomplish the works. We are proud to have this playing surface, the first in Greece and would be please to recommend to other clubs.George Pavlou, July 2016
TRAINING FACILITY MANAGER, BESIKTAS JK
Installation of SIS Pitches latest hybrid system pitch technology SISGRASS will be a touchstone of our team’s success. By having an all-year round mint condition surface for players – both on stadium and training pitch- it will give a consistent concentration for better play to all technical and field team. “Working with SIS Pitches has already feels like we have taken one step further towards to a new era of football play excitement.Mr Ilker Yilmaz, January 2016
MANAGER, HULL CITY TIGERS FC
With SISGRASS, SIS Pitches has not only matched the competition I believe they have bettered it. The accuracy of the stitching was amazing and was also cleaner and neater. Not having to worry about major oil leaks was also a huge comfort. Being electric is a huge step forward. The time on site was also greatly reduced, the whole pitch being done extremely quickly with just one machine. Its playability is excellent and all in all SISGRASS is a massive step forward, one which will benefit many clubs and training grounds in the months and years ahead.Alan Ferguson, July 2015
MANAGING DIRECTOR, ROSSLYN PARK FC
SIS Pitches were very highly recommended to us by in particular our friends at Saracens. It was a major project for Rosslyn Park, the biggest capital outlay for many a moon and we wanted to work with the best. We are absolutely delighted with our new pitch, it is an amazing facility and the amount and quality of rugby that is now being played on our 1 pitch main site is fantastic! We could not be happier with our decision to install an artificial pitch facility and, as importantly, our decision to work with SIS Pitches. We would highly recommend SIS Pitches to anyone looking to make the conversion from grass to 4G. Extremely professional from start to finish and a pleasure to work with.Shaun Justice, September 2015
HEAD GROUNDSMAN , DERBY COUNTY
We had six weeks to grow the pitch from seed, and in this time we also had to carry out the stitching. The pitch was completed in five days with two machines- which is remarkable. The machines have many features which help to reduce the stress on the plant during the stitching which is a huge bonus with the renovation windows getting shorter every season.
We have been able to host additional usage on the stadium pitch and also improve on pitch quality. The players, coaches and staff have all noticed the difference both here and Pride Park Stadium and at our training centre, where we have installed four.Nathan Scarff, February 2017
STADIUM DIRECTOR, SARACENS
Whilst our priority is to provide the best possible playing surface for our home Aviva Premiership Rugby and European fixtures (which the SISTurf surface allows us to do), Saracens has also always been known for its community focus. Having the SISTurf pitch helps us provide users, young and old, from our community, access to the facility and surface for their training and fixtures. The aim is to embrace the community and encourage a sense of affiliation to Saracens, something the SISTurf pitch is a huge part of.Richard Gregg, April 2017
DIRECTOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, MALTA NATIONAL STADIUM
After consultation with world leaders in design and construction of hybrid pitches, the Malta FA awarded the contract to SIS Pitches who are well known for this type of technology. The works comprised of the removal of pitch profile to drainage level, the supply and installation of a new drainage system including a gravel layer, an irrigation system followed by sand and root zone layer as well as installation of SISGrass and grow-in maintenance. The standard of service received from appointment through to completion was to a high professional standard. The quality of construction was delivered to the highest standards with the project being delivered on schedule, within the agreed budget and to the satisfaction of players.Emanuel Cassar, March 2017
