Press Room: Hotels expand their sports offering with more Playrite pitches

Hotels expand their sports offering with more Playrite pitches

A popular activities hotel in Devon is able to offer guests and local sports clubs the use of a football and rugby pitch all year round thanks to the installation of a 3G synthetic pitch from Playrite.

Football and rugby pitch

The Manor House Hotel and Ashbury Golf Hotel in the beautiful open countryside of Okehampton, make up the UK’s largest golf resort and the facility is also a leading provider of sport, craft, leisure and Spa activities for the whole family.

The hotels boast an enviable array of sports facilities that are unrivalled anywhere in the United Kingdom, which sees guests returning year after year to enjoy.

Playrite has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the hotel and its synthetic surfaces have been used heavily both indoors and outdoors for a variety of sports including tennis / football / bowls and children’s play.

Playrite was approached by the hotel to discuss an ambitious project to create a full size 3G pitch suitable for football and rugby. The scale of the project involved significant private investment by the hotel and was confirmation of the desire to provide continued 5-star sports facilities in an hotel environment.

After working closely together over a period of months, Playrite’s Conqueror 60MP - 60mm 3G Surface was chosen for the project.

Playrite Conqueror 60MP Monofilament Tufted Synthetic Grass is certified by the sports governing bodies for football and rugby use as was the criteria outlined by the client.

Over a period of several months the hotels’ experienced in-house team was able to construct the full-size facility and install over 7000 square metres of Playrite Conqueror 60MP - 3G Surface.

The facility is being enjoyed on a daily basis by guests, sports clubs, local football teams and schools from around the area and is benefitting both the hotel and community immensely.
