Over the past 10 years sport facilities, particularly secondary artificial turf pitches, have become high agenda items for secondary schools in their sports education. Government requirements have put an increased focus on participation levels within the age range of 11- 16 years and those entering higher education into colleges and universities. Using an STM pitch means that sports education is possible all year round.
STM artificial pitch design & installation services include:
- A range of artificial turf products that accommodate various secondary school sports such as football, hockey, netball, tennis and basketball
- MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) design and installation
- The best in synthetic turf technology
- Ongoing maintenance and resurface options
- Fencing and lighting options
- Seating and shelter options
- Tailored pitch markings and optional extras (goals, kickboards etc.)

MUGAs & Sports Surfaces
At Synthetic Turf Management we know the importance of safety and durability when it comes to a school’s sporting areas. Our artificial turf (commonly known as astro turf) products are made from the best in synthetic turf technology. We also offer an excellent maintenance plan and resurfacing options, to ensure that our customer gets the maximum potential our of their synthetic turf.
STM designs and installs MUGAs (Multi Use Games Areas) on a regular basis. MUGAs are particularly suited to secondary school usage due to the diverse range of sports they can accommodate. Advancements in synthetic turf yarn technology, alongside the manufacturing process of synthetic turf, means that different sports’ needs can now be combined into one pitch. This is both cost and space effective, maximising school budgets and space limits.
These facilities also support community involvement with clubs and governing bodies involved in the promoting of all year round activities.
Fencing & Lighting for Synthetic Surfaces
Floodlights for secondary schools
Synthetic Turf Management also provides extensive fencing and lighting options, which make students’ experience of synthetic turf sports much safer. Every artificial pitch that we design and install is tailored to very individual needs. For example, you may want 5-a-side football pitch markings, as well as markings for a separate training area. We also have plenty of options for things such as goals, recesses and kickboards. As there are so many different synthetic turf options, we are happy to discuss which one is best for your secondary school, and advise you on how we can make the most of the space you have.
