Rathdown School in Dublin have been planning a water based hockey pitch on the School Campus for sometime now and thanks to a dedicated pitch committee the ground was finally cut in April 2015 to start the works. The contract was awarded to Tony Patterson Sports Contracts and will be completed by September 2015.
The School and Monkstown Hockey Club will share the facility which is already a centre of excellence for Hockey given recent results.
These photos show the formation of the pitch being prepared for the drainage to be installed.
We will provide regular updates progress on this project so watch for further blogs.
