AGSD – Future Projects
4G Artificial Grass Pitch
For decades the grass pitches at AGSB have suffered from flooding, particularly during the winter months when they are used most. This means that every year numerous rugby and football fixtures have to be cancelled.
The School therefore explored the possibility of developing an artificial grass pitch suitable for playing both football and full contact rugby.
AGSD funded the planning application and planning consent has now been secured for the new ‘4G’ Artificial Grass Pitch to be built alongside the existing all-weather pitch.
The cost of the development is approximately £1 million and AGSD have already pledged £100,000 towards this. The School is in the process of exploring further funding initiatives in the hope that the pitch can be delivered by 2023.
