UK’s Top AstroTurf Lands at DVC Sports!

Date: 29/08/2013

Staff, students and clients at DVC Sports are excited to welcome a brand new addition to their state-of-the-art sports and fitness centre. The facility, that is part of Dearne Valley College’s Manvers campus, has invested £160,000 into refurbishing its outdoor surface to benefit the local community.

The new AstroTurf is the very first 11-a-side IDNA X synthetic surface in the UK, and was supplied by market leaders, Desso, who also recently worked with Manchester United Football Club to provide their new pitch at Old Trafford.

To ensure that their Wath-based facilities maintained its high specification image, DVC Sports also recruited DURA-Sport to install their new surface, who has also worked on venues including the likes of Wembley stadium. The 3G synthetic pitch is an accredited FIFA 2 star facility and could potentially host events as big as international fixtures.

Speaking about the exciting addition, Manager at DVC Sports, Shaun Woodward said:

“We are proud to have invested in such a fantastic surface that the local community can now take advantage of. This surface is the very best of its kind in the country at the moment, and is the same surface that Premier League football team, Manchester City will be installing at their training facility in the coming months.”

“We pride ourselves in offering a top-notch service, and will continue to invest in sporting opportunities for the community”.

The sports centre will be hosting an official launch event for the new facility on Wednesday 18th September, involving the official ribbon-cutting, a 7-a-side football tournament and VIP guests.

The newly refurbished pitches are available to hire seven days a week, along with a variety of other services and opportunities available at DVC Sports. Please contact the team on 01709 513315 or at to enquire further!
