Meggetland, Edinburgh get major refit to upgrade existing pitch to Water Based Facility

Edinburgh Leisure and Edinburgh City Council start work on a major upgrade to Meggetland Hockey Pitch, Edinburgh. Supported by Sportscotland and Cala this project will deliver another top flight pitch to the City - where water based pitches are thin on the ground!

Sports Labs Ltd, specialist pitch Consultants for Edinburgh City Council are steering this project on behalf of the Client Edinburgh Leisure and Edinburgh City Council. Ecosse Sports a local contractor is responsible for the refurbishment and will be installing the very popular Tiger Turf Wett Pro monofilament artificial turf. The pitch will be refurbished with a new shock pad and new irrigation as well as installing the much needed seats to the concrete stand! Weather permitting this pitch should be ready for action early in the new year.

View from stand looking west, here the old shock pad is being removed prior to localised repairs being made on the macadam substrate.
