Thomas’s Clapham Independent School
Vitality Play were proud to be contracted by Thomas’s Independent School in Clapham, to transform a 3040m2 playground area into a MUGA to be enjoyed by all their children. Previously, Vitality had in 2019, transformed Thomas’s Fulham playground area so this was the second project on the Thomas’s 8 school estate. Thomas’s are one of the leading
Independent Schools in London catering for boys and girls aged between 4 and 13.
Bredon School approached Vitality Play
pre – lockdown to discuss transforming a hard surfaced play area into a 57 x 34 MUGA suitable for multi sports. After a thorough consultation and survey with the VP team, planning permission was approved to start the resurfacing project in early July 2020. The project took just 4 weeks to complete and a spokesperson for Bredon School was “delighted with the value of the VP solution and complimented the installation team on a superb job”. Bredon chose our Green Multi – Sport artificial grass to resurface the area. Lines were cut into the surface in white, yellow and black to create hockey, netball and tennis pitches/courts. The Multi Sport surface is installed supported by our 10 year manufacturers warranty. The 57 x 34 pitch is surrounded by our 1 metre high green sports rebound fencing installed with 2 access/exit gates. The hard core surface was initially levelled by the VP installation team who then installed an Aco drainage system solution.
Our installation team have totally transformed Thomas’s Clapham hard surfaced play area into a soft, friendly MUGA complex containing 4 netball courts, 4 mini football pitches, 4 tennis courts and 4 cricket wickets.
Our outstanding Green Multi- Sport artificial grass was laid on top of a 10mm cushion/sports pad that provided the safety that the children required. Lines for the 16 pitches and courts were permanently installed in red, blue, yellow, black and white. Our team levelled the hard surfaced area before installing the multi use surface.
The project was completed in 5 weeks over the Summer holidays in time for the children to return in September. Tobyn Thomas, Principal, at Thomas’s, is delighted with the quality of the Vitality installation and with the end product. The surface was installed supported by our 10 year manufacturers guarantee. I think you will agree it looks absolutely stunning and has totally transformed the children’s play and sports facilities.
