Adsum Sport and Play is one of the most recent companies to join SAPCA as a principal contractor for the construction of synthetic pitches and multisport facilities.

Offering a broad and comprehensive range of sports construction services – from design and planning through to full construction and aftercare with maintenance – Adsum works with schools, sports clubs, and domestic clients to achieve a tailored solution to their sports facility requirements.

2023 has been a busy year for the company. Some of the most recent projects include the refurbishment of Wisbech Town Cricket and Hockey Club’s synthetic turf pitch. The existing surface and shock pad were replaced with an insitu-laid shock pad and a Lano STec Integration Xperience sand-dressed surface. The perimeter fence was also replaced, and the floodlights were upgraded to LED.

Matt Esser, chair of Wisbech Town Hockey Club, said: “Adsum’s approach to the work was extremely professional and delivered us a wonderful asset, on budget, ahead of schedule and to an extremely high specification.

Adsum also completed the resurface of The Earls High School’s sand-filled synthetic pitch, which involved the removal of the old surface and shock pad, localised base repairs, and installation of a new 3G surface. Tiger Turf Atomic Pro 50 was chosen to provide the school with a top-quality sports facility.

In August, Adsum Sport and Play resurfaced the Nicholas Breakspear Catholic Schools’ synthetic turf pitch. The existing 3G surface was removed, followed by localised base repairs and installation of a new Lano Profoot TLT Star 50-13 surface.

The company continues to build a solid reputation in the Channel Islands. Earlier this year, Adsum completed a full refurbishment of the Elizabeth College’s Memorial Field hockey pitch in Guernsey. Works included removal of the old surface, shock pad layers, fencing and floodlights. The reconstruction involved a new pitch base, an insitu shockpad, installation of Polytan’s Poligras Superplay surface, new fencing, and LED floodlights.

James Couchman, Bursar at Elizabeth College, commented: “Adsum’s well-established working relationships with a number of sub-contractors were especially helpful in our context and we are delighted with the end product and the impact that the newly refurbished hockey pitch will have on our island.”

Adsum Sport and Play is currently back in Guernsey working on their largest project to date – the construction of a 3G stadium pitch at the new home of the Guernsey FA at the Victoria Avenue playing fields in St Sampsons.
