King’s Ely’s synthetic sports pitch has a new astro surface, shock pad, fencing system and dugouts following a £440,000 
refurbishment. 

The project was carried out by Velocity Sports Ltd and Surfacing Standards Ltd and was started in July this year.  

The school’s 1st XI Hockey girls were the first students to tread the new surface and they won their match against Wisbech Grammar School 4-0.

Steve Wilcockson, managing director of Surfacing Standards Ltd, said: “The pitch looks fantastic and Ely Cathedral in the background makes such a stunning backdrop."
