New 3G Rubber Crumb pitch - Talybont
Cardiff University Sport & Exercise is pleased to announce the completion of the new 3G Rubber Crumb pitch project at the University Sports Centre – Talybont.
This Third Generation (3G) facility was constructed by ‘South Wales Sports Grounds’ and consists of a rubber crumb filled long pile synthetic surface laid onto an engineered base and meets both R.F.U and F.I.F.A standards. This pitch also has floodlights and is available to book as either a half pitch rugby/football training facility (56metres x 61 metres) or alternatively as two separate 7 aside pitches (27 metres x 55 metres). The pitch will not be suitable for hockey. Some of the University Athletic Union clubs to benefit from use of the new facility are Association Football, Rugby, American Football, Lacrosse and Ultimate Frisbee.
The space costs £70.00 per hour for the whole pitch and £35.00 per hour for a small sided pitch. Bookings after 5pm will be fractionally more expensive as a £5 levy will be factored in to cover lighting costs on all outdoor pitches.
There is limited availability of the facility and we encourage all those considering a booking to contact us as soon as possible to avoid missing out. Enquiries can be sent to Nick Bartlett (Bookings supervisor – BartlettND@cardiff.ac.uk), please include name, contact details, times etc and include ‘3G Enquiry’ in the subject line.
