Queens Park Rangers (QPR)
required an experienced and trustworthy sports contractor to construct three new hybrid pitches
at their outstanding new training ground facility (as part of Phase One of the project), in Heston.
With aspirations to return to the Premier League following a 9-year absence, the club required the First Team squad and the rest of the club’s academy teams to train at the same training ground. Purchasing Heston Training Ground means that (with enhancements to the natural turf pitches), this would be possible. In decades past, the site was home to the Concorde Club, the existing pitches were considered a lesser quality than the Championship club required.
Following a consultation process with our in-house agronomist and Technical Director Dr James Welsh
, the QPR hierarchy chose White Horse Contractors to construct the new pitches, due to their evidence of knowledge, and experience in constructing football pitches at elite level training grounds and stadiums.
With comprehensive knowledge in hybrid sports pitch installations, QPR required a new hybrid solution they could trust, our partnership with hybrid turf experts GrassMaster Solutions
means we have the ability to construct the Phase One pitches to QPR’s specification.
