Looking for an all-weather pitch? Look no further: NOW OPEN two BRAND NEW 30m x 20m 3G pitches.
A 3G sports turf is made up of a synthetic grass carpet which is installed on to an engineered macadam sub base. A shock pad is installed underneath the synthetic grass carpet to create impact absorption, making the pitch suitable for football, hockey and a number of other outdoor sports. Once the foundations and turf carpet have been installed the surfacing is filled with a layer of sand and rubber infill which falls down into the fibres and enhances the performance of the 3G pitch.
The 30m x 20m 3G pitch is available to book as a full pitch. Fully marked and perfect for both 6 a side training and matches.
The 30m x 20m half pitch at Queensway stadium is the perfect size for junior training sessions. These pitches are specifically marked for 6 a side matches.
The softer landing and shock absorption provided by the shock pad is not only beneficial for adults, children are less likely to encounter cuts and grazes.
3G pitches are not just for football. They are an adaptable all weather surface that can be used for a variety of sporting activities.
A shock pad is installed under our synthetic grass carpet making it the perfect place for contact sports such as hockey. The shock pad not only cushions your fall; but cushions every step you take, lessening the impact on your joints. The excellent characteristics in terms of ball bounce and ball roll makes it the perfect setting for hockey. Full height fences not only make it safer for spectators but help keep the ball on the pitch.
Make sure you wear appropriate footwear at all times whilst using our 3G pitch. The use of a sports training shoe is permitted for use on the pitch however, for guidance on the best footwear to wear and other essential pitch usage guidelines and information click here.
The potential benefits of physical activity to health are huge. If a medication existed which had a similar effect, it would be regarded as a ‘wonder drug’ or ‘miracle cure’Professor Sir Liam Donaldson
The National Exercise Referral Scheme (NERS) is a Welsh Government (WG) funded scheme which has been in development since 2006 to standardize exercise referral opportunities across all local authorities and Local Health Boards in Wales.
The Scheme is funded by Welsh Government and working in partnership with the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA), local authorities, Public Health Wales (PHW) and Local Health Boards. It targets clients who are at risk of developing chronic disease, providing an opportunity for referrals to access a high quality supervised exercise program to improved health and wellbeing.
Coordinated locally by Wrexham County Borough Council and aimed at those over 16 years of age, who are not used to being regularly physically active and have a medical condition, the Scheme is designed to provide opportunities to exercise that are fun, rewarding and that can be incorporated into everyday life.
Clients are referred by a GP or Health Practitioner so if you think you would benefit from joining this scheme please speak to your GP or visit www.wrexham.gov.uk/ners
