What we did...

Schools360 and Playfiveaside approached Castlehaven Community Association to redevelop its desolate tarmac space. It was a magnificent space but was very under utilised and Castlehaven saw the potential of redeveloping the space.

After lengthy negotiations Castlehaven set several conditions:

The pitch must be a multi sports surface allowing for all sports to be played.
Markings for netball, hockey and football were essential.
New goals were required.
A member of staff was required on site at all times.
All maintenance was to be carried out by Schools360 and Playfiveaside.

A new 9 a side football pitch was developed that could be divided via netting into 3 5 a side pitches. Markings were provided for both hockey and netball and the storage space next to the football pitch was converted into a tuck shop office to allow for site management.

Schools360 continues to run and manage this facility 9am-10pm Monday-Sunday with hours dedicated in this for community use and school hire.
