Velocity Sports Ltd recently replaced the existing natural turf pitch at the War Memorial Sports Ground with a FIFA 2* certified 3rd Generation artificial grass football pitch.
The project was the result of the vision and hard work of club owner Paul Dipre who successfully appealed an initial planning rejection from Sutton Borough Council.
After an extensive tender process, which included discharging the relevant planning conditions, Carshalton Athletic selected Velocity Sports for the scheme and works started in the close season.
An extensive initial earthworks phase, including removal and disposal of the existing topsoil and a balanced cut and fill operation to reduce the 2m slope was executed as the pitch took shape.

- Performance Testing
"We have received a high number of compliments about the pitch which is very encouraging, Velocity have been a very good supplier and carried out the works in a diligent and professional manner."
Paul Dipre, Carshalton Athletic FC Owner
