Over the hot summer, Ealing Trailfinders RFC had commissioned the specialist firm Velocity Sports Limited to install a state of the art 3G synthetic playing surface, replacing the 1st XV turf pitch at the home ground, Vallis Way in Ealing.
The decision to opt for the new surface was based upon the highly positive experiences at both London Irish RFC and at Saracens Allianz Park. Our own research and the supplier’s recommendation identified the perfect match for our requirements in the Rhino-Turf VT60 product coupled with a Performance Base – a great combination for Ealing Trailfinders!
Player welfare, pitch firmness, consistent high end performance and realistic aesthetics were obviously key factors as we reached our decision and the immediate and loud feedback from the whole team here indicates we chose correctly. The new surface shrugs off the effects of the weather and effectively allows us to train and play competitive matches at every level all year round.
The whole process was quick, efficient and the end results have been 100% positive – I have no hesitation in recommending Velocity Sports and their excellent product range to other pro sporting organizations.
