Hybrid Pitch Annual Renovation

12 Jun 2018 09:50 am:

Tigers pitch is undergoing it's annual renovation?..... I presume that we will need to do likewise...which I assume reduces the window for revenue use of the pitch in the summer? Quite surprised me....

I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

Not up on these things but the description of the Tigers pitch sounds different to 'Holm
The only problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you have finished.

“This will create a nice clean sand profile which we will then top dress with around 80 tons of sand. We’ll then aerate the pitch"

Sounds just like Weston - hopefully with donkeys!

The article seems to suggest the process only takes 3 days so presumably sensible planning would allow for the pitch still to be used for gigs etc

From what I can see the Tigers contractor - Premier Turfing in Langworth, Lincs a different supplier to one being used at Kingsholm - County Turf based in Scunthorpe and laying a 'Hero Hybrid Grass' pitch.

Tom Jones' agent is keeping a very close eye on the matter.
