Whitehaven AFC, Lakes College in Workington and Richard Rose Central Academy, in Carlisle, Cumbrian synthetic turf, SIS Pitches, SISTurf

Whitehaven AFC, Lakes College in Workington and Richard Rose Central Academy, in Carlisle, have all had brand new synthetic SISTurf pitches supplied and installed by SIS Pitches ready for the new season.

The new playing surfaces are a significant boost for sport in Cumbria with increased participation and facility improvements high on the agenda.

The Glasson Industrial Estate-based company has won contracts all over the world from Moscow to Turkey, Baku to England’s St George’s Park but they have been installing over 25,000 square meters of synthetic turf to major projects in Cumbria in the past two months.

Ged Knight, Manufacturing Director at the SIS Pitches Maryport factory, commented; “SIS Pitches delivers high quality synthetic pitches across the globe but we are very proud to be working on projects that will benefit our local area immensely.

“As a business we are passionate about sport in Cumbria and to see the difference the new facilities make to people at home is very satisfying for everyone involved at the factory.”

The Whitehaven renovation is part of a half a million pound project that aims to help increase participation in girl’s football by over 70 per cent.

Bill Robson, from Whithaven Amateurs FC, added; “The upgrading of our 3g pitch is a major but very necessary, undertaking for our club to ensure sporting provision well into the future.”

SIS Pitches employ over 40 staff at its manufacturing headquarters in Maryport and has offices in the UK, Ireland, Russia, Turkey, Holland, Middle East and Angola; delivering natural and synthetic turf pitches to some of the greatest names in sport, as well as to schools, colleges, universities, sports clubs and local authorities.
